Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of agave nectar, panettone, white strawberry, honey, and toffee-popcorn with a satiny, vibrant, dry light-to-medium body and a seamless, relaxed finish with accents of crisp apple and grape leaves with fruit tannins. A dry, food-friendly white to pair with rich, fatty fish like salmon or monkfish.

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.
