Silvery emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of overripe apple and lemon and grass with a soft, bright, fruity light body and an even, brisk finish with impressions of nectarine, nutskin, and moss with fine, fruit tannins. A dry, breezy riesling quaffer.

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.
