Silvery straw color. Bright, attractive, tropical aromas and flavors of guanabana, guava, peach cobbler, and figs with a silky, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, layered, medium-long orange, apple, melon, and banana finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins and no oak. A delicious and nuanced white wine with great table appeal.

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.
