Wine Review: This almost clear colored wine opens with a mild green pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild green pear with a touch of lime. The finish is dry and it is easy going. This quaffer was very well received. It is very food friendly and would pair well with chicken quesadillas. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: At the palate Lumina 2009 is medium bodied, very fragrant and elegant. It shows a marvelous freshness, accompanied by notes of yellow peel fruits, coherently with the olfactory sensations. A pleasant mineral touch completes a long lasting final, which recalls hints of sage and still denotes a good freshness.
