*A brilliant pale golden color.
* The nose is rich in both ripe tropical fruit and stone fruit and a toasty oak note.
*The flavors are direct reflections of the nose, ripe Pineapple and tropical fruits. Rich yet elegant with a long fresh crisp finish.
Enjoy with herbed fish and poultry, perhaps accented with citrus.
