Aromas are lovely, with soft sweet citrus and magnolia wafting up from the glass. Tight, clearly defined tropical comes out up front on the palate, white grapefruit, mango and Valencia orange. White florals come through on the mid-palate, but not as powerful as on the nose, more orange blossom than magnolia. Freshness come through with a nice citrus zing. Drink with fried chicken, outside, on a sunny day. Recommended. 88 points. DBH

About The Author

David Honig

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.
