Wine Review: This golden yellow wine opens with a fresh sliced apple bouquet with hints of pineapple. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, a bit acidic, lively, and displays spicy lemon-lime like flavors with hints of butter. The finish is dry, a touch acidic, and brief. This wine was one of the most popular white wines at the Friday night event at the Newport Wine Festival. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine opens with tropical fruit and honeysuckle aromas. Luxurious flavors of crème brulee and even a hint of butter are framed by notes of fine oak and the lively acidity of citrus zest. The mouth-feel is full and lush and brings all the wine’s elements through to a long, persistent finish.
