Our review: Light yellow-gold in color, this wine is very fragrant, with aromas of tropical fruit and honey. Smooth on the palate, the fruit flavors are initially a bit sweet but a moderating acidity quickly develops. The finish adds some mineral character, is persistent but rather thin.

Our rating: This is a nice, but not necessarily memorable wine, lacking some of the citrus/grass notes that we typically associate with this varietal. We served our bottle with a lunch of salad and sandwiches, an appropriate setting. It's probably best paired with lighter meals, or maybe appetizers. We rate it about Average, maybe a little better.
