Wine Review: This straw colored wine opens with a very fragrant and appealing ripe pear bouquet with hint of peach and spring flowers. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly sweet, and nicely balanced. The flavor profile is a very tasty tropical fruit blend with hints of pineapple, lychee and tangerine peeking through. The finish is semi-sweet and it flavors are nicely prolonged. This is a pleasant summer sipper. No food required. Just a hot day and a pool. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Upon first gaze you will notice the color of pale straw, complemented by flecks of gold. Aromas of orange blossom, wildflowers and jasmine with just a hint of clove rewards your nose. Upon taking your first sip, this lovely wine showcases creamy acids, tropical notes of ripe pineapple, guava and citrus fruits. A combination of minerals and semi-sweet fruits produces a lingering finish in this highly aromatic wine.
