Inviting aromas of elderflower, passionfruit, melon, and Kefir lime lead the way to a medium-bodied white wine with a refreshing zing of bright acid, followed by flavors of white peach, Asian pear, and lemongrass. The well-balanced nature of this wine is evident in its soft, lingering finish.

Fresh lemon, green apple and guava on the nose with subtle notes of freshly cut grass. White pepper hints on the palate, too. It’s medium-bodied and crisp with wonderful focus and tension on the finish. Drink now.
