"The aroma is tangy with an herbal green note, a touch of caramel and vanilla coming through. As you taste, it's just a touch sweet on your palate. The acidity in the wine helps to balance this out so the sweetness isn't overpowering. It is fruit forward with the grape wine and orange notes coming through. The fino sherry notes give it a slight nutty flavor as well. A fun warm-weather wine to have on the rocks with a twist--instant cocktail in a glass."
