Pale straw green color. Tropical aromas and flavors of caramelized tropical fruits, banana, and minted melon with a supple, soft, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, snappy finish manifesting shades of roasted grapefruit, vanilla yogurt nuts, kiwi and starfruit, and grass with fine, dusty tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A pleasing, lightly tropical and savory white blend.

While white varieties such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling are very important throughout wine regions in the US, there are numerous others planted in various zones. In California, Italian varieties such as Pinot Grigio and Arneis can be found, while producers in Santa Barbara and Paso Robles work with white Rhone varieties such as Marsanne and Viognier.

New York State works with hybrid grapes, both French and American. Among these are Cayuga, Seyval Blanc and Vignoles. This last grape is also grown in various Midwest states such as Missouri, Indiana and Illinois.
