Tasting Profile

Look:

Light pale golden hues with glinting edges. Tall, slow-moving legs start high on the glass wall before running slowly downward.

Smell:

Freshly cut green grass, passionfruit, pineapple, pomello with a lovely hint of fresh spring mix salad with subtle fresh herbs.

Taste:

Crisp and bright with pineapple, yellow grapefruit, Meyer lemon zest, lime leaf and a hint of fresh garden herbs.

Finish:

Flavors spread to the far corners of the palate before slowly tailing off. As flavors fade, a very smooth dryness spreads to the edges of the palate.

Pairing:

Server this delightful wine with raw oysters with horseradish or mignonette. A lovely antipasti would also be fantastic.
