The wine is very light almost white/clear, in color. The nose offers light tropical fruits and a touch of citrus. The feel on the palate is soft, slightly viscous, and leads with pears, mangos, and fresh-cut grass. It adds citrus and Key lime on the mid-palate. The finish lingers. The tiniest hint of residual sugar adds a counter-balance to good acids. This is a nice glass of wine, a full-bodied white ready for food. Drink with flaky white fish. Highly Recommended (90). DH
