WineO Mark Review

This wine is very aromatic with loads of tropical flavors. I can smell aromas of pear, butterscotch, apple pie, and oak.

On the palate, I can taste some grapefruit, pear, banana, and baked apple on the palate. There’s also some hint of baking spices, vanilla, and notes of toasted oak in the finish.

It’s a medium bodied wine with a smooth and round mouthfeel. There is striking acidity with notes of citrus and pineapple. But it also has a buttery texture which gives off its soft texture.
