Pale lemon colored with medium intensity aromas of lush tropical fruit- pineapple, papaya and kiwi fruit intermingled with pear, rose petals and bruised red apple. The palate is dry with medium (-) acidity and medium body. Flavors of papaya and pear dominate with kiwi and bruised red apple supporting. The papaya and apple both have a unique, overripe accent that makes this quite interesting and adds to the body of this lush wine. It has a medium length finish with a touch of astringency from almond seed that I find intriguing. This is an interesting varietal that I am thoroughly enjoying. Tonight I am pairing it with Chinese inspired dishes including some spicy chili infused plates. I believe the wine will stand up to the heat and complexity of the fare. 89 points for this $18 wine makes it a 4 star effort to try out. Drink now. Salut….
