Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very feminine with lovely aromas of lychee, pineapple, lemon and honeysuckle. Crisp acidity with a tangy, lemon finish. Pair with spicy Thai. Tasted July 24, 2015.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a crisp, off dry white that starts out with a hint of sweetness then quickly starts your taste buds watering with its racy acidity. It's a blend of 80% Riesling and
20% Gewurztraminer that has seen no oak. Aromas of lychee and lemon with lots of citrus flavours on the palate. A great match for Asian or vegetarian cuisine or as an aperitif. Tasted Oct. 5/2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Moderate aromas of bees wax, rose water, peach and orange blossom. Palate is off-dry with high balancing acidity and moderately long citrus finish. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A nice approachable white blend that appears as pale straw yellow in your glass and offers up aromas of green melon, lychee, lemon, and a suggestion of rose petals. It is bone dry and crisp with a soupçon of flower power and leaves you with a long refreshing lemon finish. This decent quaff would pair with fish tacos on jalapeño corn tortillas.
