Wine Description

This wine opens with layered aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, shortbread and ripe pear. On the palate are flavors of baked, locally grown, Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and white peach. The end result is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balanced mouthfeel.

    Strong grapefruit notes. Floral and citrus nose. A little bitter for my taste but great flavor for those who enjoy citrus forward.

    I used it to make the sauce for the scallops as well as enjoyed while eating them. It was an excellent pairing.
