Winemaker's Notes:

This wine jumps into your nasal cavities wit hsweet aromas of fresh cut pears, green apples and hints of vanilla and cream. The light clean flavors in the mouth encompass citrus and green apple well-balanced by refreshing and flinty acidity for a perfect and lively finish with lingering hints of citrus rind. A lively, crisp, fruity and perfect "solo" sipper that also marries well with food.
