Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of kiwi, green apple, sunflower, cut grass, and grilled peach with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, relaxed finish with elements of chamomile tea and sunflower seed brittle with a suggestion of oak flavor. An herbaceous full bodied white for dinner pairing.

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.
