Tasting Notes:

Bright fruit aromatics include lemon and orange, leading to a flavor palate of lemon, pear, apricot and tropical fruit. Its texture gives way to a wonderfully smooth and crisp finish that is easy to drink sitting out on the front deck. The higher acidity balances the higher than normal residual sugar.

This wine has excellent balance for drinking by itself at cool temperatures or with spicy Thai or Indian foods.
