Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw in color, this is a varietally distinct wine, both in the bouquet and on the palate. The hints of floral aromas, including orange blossom and honeysuckle, create anticipation of the flavors to come. The taste is crisp and fresh, elegantly combining flavors of apple, peaches and melon with spice in the finish. Cold fermentation captures the fruit flavors of the Reisling variety, producing an intriguing wine that is delighted as an aperitif or with fruits, cheeses and a variety of light entrees.

Alcohol: 11.5% by volume
