Winemaker's Notes

Just barely off-dry, the fruit exhibits more exotic overtones than the sec, while the acids provide excellent balancing zip and freshness. A restrained, elegant demi-sec.

Critical Acclaim

"Quite forward, with a flattering, off-dry edge to the pear, quince, brioche and ginger notes, which are offset by a twinge of green plum on the finish. Drink now through 2013."
