Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 88.8% Chenin Blanc, 6% Sauvignon Blanc, 5.2% Chardonnay

Pale straw color. A nose of tropical fruit and summer melon with a hint of spice. Crisp and full bodied, the papaya and pineapple flavors ensure a lingering aftertaste.

Food suggestions: An ideal wine to be enjoyed with salads, char-grilled artichokes in olive oil or platters of ripe fruit. Also matches fresh line fish and light, cream-based pastas. A perfect picnic wine.
