Yellow straw color. Aromas of fallen melon, bee pollen, baked peach, pickled ginger and apples, and dried flowers with a satiny, vibrant, off-dry medium body and a smooth, refreshing, medium-length pickled white strawberry, rhubarb, and pineapple-tamarind chutney finish with no oak flavor. A funky, fruity New Jersey white with pickle-y acidity that grows on you; try with southeast Asian cuisines.

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.
