Our review: Light golden straw in color, this wine has aromas of citrus and stone fruit with notes of flowers. The flavor on the palate tends toward the citrus, but seems unbalanced, or maybe unstructured, and never develops much. The lengthy finish introduces an unpleasant herbal/mineral character.

Our rating: This is an odd wine, one that we didn't really enjoy much. None of the various elements come together, and on the whole it seems rather unfinished. We served our bottle with a pasta dish, which didn't help (or, for that matter, hurt) either the wine or the food. Still, we rate it Below Average.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
