Light gold color. Toasty, fruity aromas and flavors of pineapple and apple tarts and praline and nougat with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, appealing, medium-length toasted coconut and roasted nut finish with silky, fine tannins and moderate oak. A delightfully supple and balanced well-oaked white blend.

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.
