Wine Review: This light yellow colored white blend opens with a mild Anjou pear like bouquet with hints of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and slightly viscous. The flavor profile is a pleasant Anjou pear with notes of almond. I also detected hints of wax bean and tangerine. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This is a classy white wine that would pair nicely with pan fried trout drizzled with butter. Enjoy – Ken
