“A beautiful pale straw color with a golden hue. The nose displays rich stone and orchard fruit, floral blossoms, sea breeze, and baked bread. The palate is round yet refreshing, thanks to the five months of sur lie aging. A buttery texture with a lively crispness making it clean and refreshing. A terrific wine to enjoy with salads, roast chicken, seafood, and of course the company of a dear friend. Great value.”
