Wine Review: This very light yellow colored wine opens with a mild honeyed pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, crisp and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear with hints of white pepper and a touch of lime. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This wine would pair well seared scallops with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: A lush and inviting nose of guava, citrus blossom and lemongrass leads into the supple, juicy palate bursting with racy citrus zest, golden apple and gooseberry fruit. Balanced and rounded, its lively acidity and hints of wet stone add interest and complexity through to the very end of a persistent finish.
