Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant green with a light yellow hue. Citrus notes with hints of green apples and a fine trace of oak. The palate is full with a soft mouth feel. The mid-palate flavors are reminiscent of stone and citrus fruits, with subtle vanilla undertones from the oak. The finish is clean and fresh with a lingering flavor of lemon drops.

Enjoy on its own or with mushroom or seafood dishes.
