Tasting Set Includes:
- Sun Goddess by Mary J. Blige Pinot Grigio Ramato
The bouquet is intense and complex, with hints of fruits (peach, melon and berries). On the palate it is round, with a pleasant acidity, soft tannins and a finish rich in mineral sensations. With origins in Italy’s northeastern province of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Ramato (Italian for "auburn" or "copper") wines are produced by macerating Pinot Grigio grape must with its skins. The skins’ pink hue gives the wines color from a semi-pale pink to dark orange, depending on maceration time.
- Sun Goddess by Mary J. Blige Sauvignon Blanc
Straw-yellow with lively greenish tinges. Intensely aromatic, with tropical notes of passion fruit, banana, and melon and hints of spice. Particularly structured with a balance between an intense acidity and smoothness with a long finish.
