Wine Review: This pale yellow colored white blend from down under is a terrific value wine. It opens with an Anjou pear and wet stone bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, round, balanced, and crisp. The flavor profile continues to display Anjou pear with notes of minerality and a touch of tangerine and hint of lime. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This wine would pair well with grilled swordfish kabobs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Its nose is initially dominated by Riesling notes of citrus and lime, with passionfruit and tropical fruit from the Sauvignon Blanc emerging. Spices, musk, freshly cut flower stems and almonds round out the mid-palate, finished with great textural richness and crisp, clean acidity.
