Winemaker's Notes:

Color - Yellow with green hue

Aroma - Yeasty, Spicy, tropical fruit

Flavor - Rich complex layers of New World fruit with leesy undertones set in a classic French style.

Finish - Long lasting flavors on the palate, with full mouth feel.

General - Made in the classic Glen Carlou style, this wine will mature well and will show rich, full citrus and biscuity flavors as it ages. Excellent with food and great company!
