Old gold color. Aromas of roasted pineapple, dried apricot, beeswax, and spiced lychee tea with a round, vibrant, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, long salty soy-glazed nuts, huitlacoche, almond paste, cured yellow tomatoes, petrol, and meyer lemon vinaigrette finish. A gorgeous, complex Petite Manseng from unassuming New Jersey with endless port-like complexity and Ausbruch-like sophistication; buy this!

Off-Dry White

Off-dry wines are slightly sweet wines that are great for sipping on their own or throughout a meal. They're different from dessert wines in that they contain considerably less residual sugar and have only a softly perceptible sweetness.
