Emerald straw color. Fresh, green, herbal aromas and flavors of overripe peach and papaya, spiced apple and figs, buffalo grass, and wild flowers with a supple, tangy, dryish medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish imparting notes of wintergreen, melon and nectarine rind, lemongrass, and grassy earth with no oak flavor. A very earthy and distinctive white wine that make for some interesting pairings.

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.
