Bright old gold color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nuts, grilled fruits, nettles and bark, and salt water with a silky, dryish light body and a brisk finish revealing notes of reduced lemon and reduced white balsam with chewy tannins. A dry, tangy, lightly funky white.

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.
