Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of beeswax, dried pineapple, cooked kiwi, dill, banana, and ginger with a round, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-length finish that shows notes of butter cookie with a suggestion of oak flavor. A rich white wine that offers structure and balance for the table.
