Gold color. Baked aromas and flavors of fruit cake with creme fraiche, caramelized lychee and pear, cashew praline, and toasted banana leaves drizzled with tamari with a glycerous, soft, dryish medium body and a seamless, medium-long finish displaying accents of apple and molasses cookie, sorghum, and spiced roasted nut. An intriguing orange wine with a Sherry-like flavor all its own.

White Hybrid Blend is a category that includes white wines made from two or more hybrid grapes; there wines comes from states such as Wisconsin, Missouri, New York State and Virginia. Grapes include Vignoles, Seyval Blanc and Traminette; the wines tender to be on the lighter side and should be enjoyed young. Food pairings depend on the dryness of the wine; picnic salads and lighter seafood are good choices.
