Winemaker's Notes

The color is an attractive straw yellow with green nuances. The clarity of the wine is exceptional. The delicate bouquet is unusually subtle with enticing hints of almond blossom and peach fruit. The wine is pleasantly dry and lightly structured. Like all delicate white wines, it is best consumed within a year of release.

Because of its clean, bright flavor and personality, the wine may be consumed with pleasure throughout a meal. However, it pairs particularly well with white meats and steamed or grilled fish. In addition, it makes a fine aperitif. The wine is best served chilled at a recommended temperature range of 46-50º F.
