Winemaker's Notes

This crisp summer sipper is a pale straw color with forward peach, apricot aroma and clove undertones. Muscat adds Chrysler rose petal notes and a tinge of jasmine which is from the Viognier. The palate is crisp due to the bright acidity from Clarksburg Chenin Blanc, with Sauvignon Blanc lending a dry and herbaceous quality. The finish on this wine is a symphony of all the best qualities of each varietal and is summarized by a fleshy blood orange essence. Nectary without being cloying, dry with orange oil and slightly textured with orange skin, this wine follows through with a ripe finish while maintaining a natural fruity grit.

This wine is a perfect aperitif on a hot day over crushed ice with a twist of orange. It also accompanies a wide array of salads such as citrus infused beets, fennel and orange salads walnut encrusted goat cheese over watercress with champagne vinaigrette.

Critical Acclaim

"What a nice wine for bistro-style drinking. Conjures up pairing with almost everything, from tempura to grilled chicken to pork enchiladas. Bone dry and crisp, it offers outstanding flavors of citrus fruits, petrol, wildflowers, grass, minerals, honey and spices. A blend of Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat Canelli and Chenin Blanc."
