Wine Review: This light yellow wine opens with a fragrant citrus and mineral like bouquet. On the palate, this medium to full bodied wine is round, crisp, and has a viscous feel to it. It is off-dry and has light lemon like flavors with a touch of grapefruit on the mid palate. This refreshing wine was a nice aperitif before dinner. The finish was pleasant, but brief. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale straw with green hues on release. Lifted lemon, lime and orange blossom nose. Delicate perfume characters underlie the obvious citrus characters. Luscious ripe fresh citrus flavors dominate the palate. The mid palate is soft and round but the wine has a crisp refreshing finish. The acid is lively but balanced with sweet citrus fruit characters.

Organic status: not organic
