"A light straw color. After pouring this wine into a glass, it immediately opens a wide range of apple aromas with roasted almonds, marzipan and pepper. Flavors of white peach, citrus and honey with a gentle dusting of white pepper. A fabulous white for a hot summer day. Do not over chill to taste the subtle fruit flavors." - 91 POINTS, Julian Park - BC Wine Trends
