The nose shows melon, baked pears, and a hint of mango. The palate starts with a burst of tropical fruit and melon, then shifts quickly to citrus fruits on the mid-palate. It is a ride through flavors, passion fruit and melon, then white grapefruit and key lime. Fresh-cut grass underlies all the fruits, and light white florals float above them, all hanging from a backbone of bright acids. Drink with very peppery southern fried chicken. Highly Recommended. 90 points.

David Honig, the Publisher, looked at what was happening in the world of wine journalism and realized there were a lot of great writers out there at the same time paying publications, from newspapers to websites, were dropping like flies. So he created Palate Press to find the best writers and create a new forum for them to sell their best work. He is a self-educated oenophile, and defers to the tremendous experience and wisdom of the amazing staff at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine.
