Winemaker's Notes

Bright straw-yellow with real luster. A decidedly elegant bouquet, alternating notes of apple, banana and vanilla, together with delicate hints of hedgerow. Racy but balanced, it has a tangy taste and fresh body, with a harmonious finish.

Pair with fish, white meat, risottos and starters.
