Quite a deep straw-yellow colour with youthful, pale green highlights, it is star-bright with fine, unctuous "tears" that trickle down the glass. One is immediately overwhelmed by its graceful, charming perfume and aromas, from fresh-cut roses to the most mystic of oriental spices. Silky, supple, soft and seductive, yet still dry and refreshing, it has body and structure, with an aromatic finish of juicy, flavourful grapes. It will also match lightly spiced food: exotic, oriental, Chinese, Indonesian or Indian, as well as cheese: blue, munster or maroilles.

Wine EnthusiastPale lemon color with slight green hue. Well defined citrus aromas with strong minerality coming through. Crisp, juicy and very refreshing with a taut, focused palate that is packed with a medley of lively ruby grapefruit, tangerine, lime and peach flavors. Firm minerality follows through on the palate adding an appealing savory edge. Medium-bodied with a long mouthwatering finish.

Wine SpectatorDisplays cold cream and rose petal notes, with more subtle lychee and spice. Dry and lightly fleshy, with a modest finish. Drink now.
