The nose is very intense; luscious tropical fruits with a rich, spiced stone-fruit character and nods of a slightly briny, passion-fruit. The mouth is rich, lush and tropical but beautifully balanced by deliciously mouth-watering acidity. The mid palate is bright and light with a fine texture and body. The finish is full of sweet herbs and cut grass, along with an intense, fine, incredibly long smack of passion-fruit and kiwi fruit. Arona's fruitier style makes it a great food wine for scallops and seafood as well as lighter chicken dishes, appetizers and salads.

Wine EnthusiastRipe, almost confected, pineapple leads the way here but it's not over the top. Grapefruit zest, snow peas and tomato-leaf characters are also in the mix. The palate is waxy in texture with fleshy tropical and citrus fruit balanced by salt and green-vegetable flavors. The acidity is on the mean and green side but the ripe fruit creeps back in on the finish.
