Offers aromas of slightly bruised pear, apple, white flowers and spice. The palate is less interesting — showing generic fruitiness that is somewhat stale — with a bit of a floral note and sharp acidity seems a bit disjointed.

Finishing a bit sour and medium-short, this wine just isn’t particularly good — probably the result of a difficult growing season.
