Wine Review: This very pale yellow wine opens with a pleasant floral bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, creamy, and shows nice balance between its acids and sweetness. The main flavor profile is ripe pear and it also shows some minerals notes as well. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. I would pair this wine with trout or sole to enhance the meal. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This gem bursts with vibrant scents of orange blossom and floral notes that overlay juicy, crisp grapefruit, fresh pear and Meyer lemon flavors. A slightly mineral, spiced finish makes this a superbly versatile wine, great as an aperitif served well-chilled, or as a foil to mildly spicy cuisine." Melissa Stackhouse, Winemaker
