It is a full-bodied white wine full of richness and velvety smoothness, with vibrant acidity perfectly balanced with the clean "bowl of fruit" on the palate. 87 Points! “Lots going on in this affordable wine. It’s zesty in acidity, with a minerally bite to the pineapple, green apple and pear jam fruit. Straddles the border between dry and honey sweet, Best Buy!” - The Wine Enthusiast
