Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Youthful and moderate in straw colour, with a nose that is very aromatic and floral with notes of: pears, white peach, salmonberries, apples, canned lychee, white flowers and rainwater. This is a dry wine with medium+ acidity, medium-alcohol and moderate body. Suprisingly, the palate did not present as much flavour as expected after such an aromatic nose. Youthful flavours of apples, Asian pears, white peach flesh, lemon rind, pistachio and white tea; with a slightly bitter tone throughout, and a medium length finish. This is a good quality wine that should be enjoyed now. Refreshing and quaffable; good to drink all on its own or paired with lighter dishes. I tried this with various cheeses (including Pecorino, which was okay), the standouts being the fresh cheeses (such as sheep's milk feta and buffalo mozzarella). Also went very well with the rabbit terrine, hazlenut crackers and a peach chutney.
