Silvery straw color. Delicate, inviting aromas of tapioca and dried coconut and banana with a silky, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a seamless, breezy nutskin, coconut milk, and vanilla cream finish with crunchy, fruit tannins and light oak. A nice dry oak sauvignon blanc in the fume style.

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.
