Parenting provides elegant and refined aromas of toasted oak, subtle vanilla and butter. perceived fruits persist on the nose, good balance between acidity and alcohol, long and round taste. Nice finish that invites further enjoying.
Pairs perfectly with Fresh Salad with Avocado Dressing, "Swiss" Enchiladas, Chicken in Tangerine Sauce, Pickled Shrimp and Pecan Bread.
Wine Enthusiast - "This was my top Mexican white wine from a recent tasting. It’s light and clean on the nose, with apple and just a touch of brininess. This shows off a good body with weight and acidic balance. Pear, papaya and dry melon are the key flavors, followed by vanilla and toast on the finish."

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
