Bright yellow straw color. Toasty, spicy aromas and flavors of apple-rhubarb tart, nougat, hint of rubber, and vanilla candle with a silky, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, easy pineapple and apple sauce finish with silky, crunchy tannins and no oak. A nice off-dry sipper that will pair nicely with spicy foods.

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.
