I'm not a fan of the label, but the wine in the bottle is surprisingly good. Clean and refreshing, as opposed to clumsy and cloying, with good acid to balance the remarkable range of tasty and mainly tropical fruit: papaya, apricot, pineapple, guava. I'm sure this wine was made to be drunk a few years ago, and the label even indicates it should be chilled from the time of purchase (it wasn't in this case), but it was hanging in there just fine in early 2013. I'd be inclined to drink this one up soon, though. - HK 2013-04-22
