Aromatic hybrid grape related to Gewürtztraminer...pairs excellently with spicy and exotic foods like Thai, Indian, and Vietnamese...the dense texture helps tame the spice and bring forward fresh exotic fruits from the wine. Perceived sweetness also lends towards pairing with barbecued ribs and chicken. Delicious with strong blue cheese, melon, cured meats and nuts. Although dry, perceived sweetness will satisfy those who like sweet wines.
Aromatic nose...fruity, floral, and spicy. Light rose petal & exotic fruits like pineapple & lychee mingle with pear and baked citrus and a collection of white spices such as nutmeg and white pepper.
Light sweet notes on the fore palate with lemon. Mid-palate presents pineapple and light peach. Finish is clean and crisp finding again notes of citrus.
