Tasting Notes

This wine is brisk, spicy and aromatic. Golden yellow in color it offers a nice bouquet of aromas ranging from tropical fruit to elderberry flowers and citrus fruit, with hints of sage and tomato leaves. Striking and enveloping on the rich palate.

Review:
“A mouthwatering white, with lively flavors of ripe nectarine and blood orange granita married to aromatic accents of Thai basil, fresh ginger, mineral and orchard blossom. Shows fine length and balance in an elegant frame. Drink now through 2020. 800 cases made.”
