Our review: Golden straw in color with aromas of ripe apple and peach coupled with floral and tropical fruit notes. The flavor profile on the palate is similar with a rather unusual slightly sweet, slightly spicy finish.

Our rating: There are some unusual characteristics to this wine that make it interesting, though to be honest, it isn't all that memorable. It's very food friendly; we served our bottle with a simple chicken dish that worked quite well. We think it may be worth a try, especially at this price point, though we rate it only Average.

Taste profile from the winemaker: "An appealing light straw colour. Light with lovely ripe, attractive rounded fruit. Fresh floral nose and an exciting acid balance."
