Brilliant yellow straw color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of spiced apples and pears, peach compote, and lilacs with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-long melon and minerals finish with fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A very tasty white blend that drinks like an Alsace wine.

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.
