Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of honey roasted nuts, apple butter, pineapple marmalade, and caramel rice cake with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, compelling, medium-long finish with accents of coconut cream and spiced apple and pear with fine, crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A crisp, crunchy chardonnay with nice fruit and a delicate style.

Other US 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.
