About This Wine: This wine opens with aromas of ripe golden apple, white peach, and notes of oak. On the palate, apple and pear characters are balanced by fresh acidity, and the finish is clean, with appealing mineral notes. This is a versatile food-pairing wine—we love it with fresh salads, grilled scallops, and nearly any selection of cheeses. — Stephanie Jacobs ** Only 10 in Stock **

Each lot is gently destemmed and fermented separately in small stainless steel tanks designed to maximize color, flavor and tannin...
