Tasting Notes:

Crisp nose of honeydew melon, tropical fruits, and green apple.
On the palate the body is light. The flavor is less fruity than the nose would leads you to expect. Intermingling light floral notes on the palate mix with soft fruit notes of earthy pears and apples.
Finishes dry with an aromatic bouquet of fruit that is lasting.
