Brand Vinum Cellars
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Appearance: This crisp white wine has a crystal pale yellow hue. Aroma: The aromas are brilliant and intense with tropical and citrus zest with linalool and ripe pineapple notes. Mouth Feel: This wine evolves into a crisp melange of refreshing fruit from honeydew to citron lemon, ripe kiwi and tart pippin apples. The wine finishes juicy while remaining appropriately acidic and dry with sweet green apple and mango nectar flavors. Food Pairing: This wine pairs fabulously with grilled fish tacos and salsa fresca, avocado, fresh lime and cilantro. Try it with summer salads like blood orange, shaved fennel and arugula in a champagne vinaigrette. Or a chioggia beet salad with toasted walnuts and gorgonzola or grilled yellowfin tuna with fresh guacamole, roasted fingerling potatoes and Maui onions.

Spicy fresh hay, dried floral and honeysuckle hints lend a toasty, spice-filled edge to the melon, citrus and apple flavors. A streak of acidity weaves in and out. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.

The charms of this full-bodied wine are mainly in the substantial and viscous texture, while mild mineral and apricot flavors provide subtle backup. Far from being simply fruity, the style emphaizes the soothing, mouth-coating feel of the wine.
