Wine Review: This light yellow colored blend opens with a faint apple and light honey bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, crisp and acidic. The flavor profile is a mineral infused tangerine with notes of stonefruit and a hint of mild pineapple towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair well with Quiche Lorraine appetizers. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Riesling gives the finesse and class to this wine, Sauvignon blanc adds loads of aromatics, and the Marsanne and Roussanne provide complexity, weight and nuttiness to the palate. The resulting wine is an exotic mix of citrus, stone fruits, passionfruit, guava and tinned pineapple which develops into a long savoury, nutty like finish. The mouthfeel is rich and luscious without being overly oily, kept in check by a fine line of mineral acidity.
