Fruit-forward, lively and intense. A pale straw color, this wine's lifted aromas of pear and fig are rounded out by a touch of creamy vanilla. On the palate, these same characters are amplified and intensified, and harmonize with balanced oak. The palate is initially rounded; its fruit flavors give way to a welcome crispness and a cleansing, fruit-forward finish. The wine's balance makes it a food-friendly complement to a wide variety of dishes, including Virginia Crab Cakes and Sea Bass with a cream-based sauce.
