Golden straw color. Aromas of almond cake, baked apricot, coriander honey, flint, banana, yeast rolls, and bee pollen with a satiny, lively, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long chamomile and pineapple coulis finish. Mouthwatering acidity, awesome minerality, and heaps of varietal character; a lovely Petite Manseng with a New Jersey swagger.

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.
