Wine Review: This light yellow colored white blend is a good value. It opens with a mild clementine and bees wax bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly viscous and round. The flavor profile is a honeyed green apple with hints of green grapes, pear and white pepper. The finish is dry, gentle and brief. The panel suggested pairing this unique blend with chicken, penne and alfredo sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Colour/Condition: Cristal clear, light straw. Aroma: Fresh and fine aromatics with peach and grapefruit notes. Palate: Rich and elegant fruit on the palate, balance and fresh acidity. Dishes: Best with grilled fish, composed salads and the charisma of Chinese food, it harmonizes a pleasant and relaxed meal.
