Winemaker's Notes

This wine's opening aromas of Ruby Red grapefruit, lemon, lime and honeydew melon are followed by hints of Granny Smith apple and herbal notes. Upon entry, the mouth fills with flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, green apple, lemon and orange. A balanced, medium-bodied wine with crisp, lively acidity and a smooth finish touched with lemongrass and ripe melon.

A wonderful wine to enjoy on its own or to accompany oysters on the half shell, grilled shrimp or scallops, poached halibut, sushi, lobster and smoked salmon. A versatile wine that pairs with a variety of ethnic cuisines from spicy Pad Thai and green or yellow curry to Vietnamese spring rolls with citrus dipping sauce or Tandoori chicken.
