Wine Review: This is a good value easy drinking white wine. It is a pale straw color and displays ripe honeydew melon, Macintosh apple, flint, light florals and fresh cut grass aromas. The wine is fresh, medium bodied, with a round and slightly creamy mouthfeel and moderate acidity. There are flavors of ripe pear, dried apricot, pineapple, vanilla creme brulee and gravely minerality. The finish is dry and nicely extended. I look forward to having this on a warm day with some freshly shucked oysters. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: At first swirl, aromatics of passionfruit, lime and candied lemon spring forward from the glass with notes of orange blossom, jasmine and melon. On the palate, the wine is refreshing with flavors of lemon curd, mango and passionfruit with hints of hibiscus. The mouthfeel is lively but rich, with a voluptuous texture. This classic, Loire Valley-style wine is excellent when paired with fresh oysters, seafood, or just about anything.
