Wine Review: A friend of our brought this wine to another friends wine tasting that I recently attending. To me this was the best white wine, I tasted that night. This light yellow wine opens with a very pleasant fresh sliced lime bouquet with a touch of grapefruit. On the palate, this light bodied wine is round, nicely balanced, and has light lime flavors that are really appealing. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. As I mentioned, our friend turned us on to this summer gem and now we are sharing it with you. Be sure to share it with your friends this summer by the pool. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is bright and lively with lemon, grapefruit, and apricot flavors. Well defined floral notes carry through to a tangy finish. The feel on the palate is also right, due to the good acids. The perfect aperitif wine.
