Winemaker's Notes

A bright, engaging nose of fresh apple, pear, and honeysuckle engages immediately. Bright apple and stone fruit flavors with excellent freshness and particularly lively acidity carry into the finish.

This wine's delicacy lends itself to the aperitif side of the menu or your favorite cheese (Italian Tallegio is a good match). It's a great luncheon wine, and it can definitely hold its own with smoked meats or barbecued salmon. Great with straight forward grilled or roast chicken, pork and match with any white fish like Alaskan Halibut.

"An effusively flowery, honeyed wine, brimming with bright aromas of butterscotch and smoke, apricots, vanilla and cinnamon. It's exotically fruity and rich, with complex flavors ranging from apricot preserves to ginger. Tasty on its own." -Wine Enthusiast
