    He said: Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Clear, just about colorless…showing just the smallest amount of lemon yellow color. Intense floral, some fresh pine boughs and tiny hints of citrus aromas. Smooth, crisp and slightly silky mouth-feel with rose petal, apple and tart citrus taste that continues through the long finish that gets even more floral at the end. Wonderful enticing bouquet, refreshing flavors and great crisp acidity equals a TERRIFIC summer sipping wine that’s an excellent value at only $11.70!!!

    She said: Pale greenish yellow, clear, chubby, plodding legs. The aroma was floral with tart accents that are followed through into the mouth with flavors of citrus especially grapefruit with a tad of sweetness that plays nicely with the tartness. The body is medium and the acidity enough to add a touch of crispness. The long finish continues the tart citrus flavor and concludes an overall pleasant experience. A bargain wine at $11 and I would buy it again.
