Broad sweetness without RS. Mineral driven nose with hints of tropical fruit. Palate shows more mineral flavors with some pineapple. Some heat on the finish, but finished clean.

The most awesome Vouvray I've had in years. Nearly clear in color, with hay, white flowers and mineral aromas. Bone dry with awesome acidity and mineral/ brine. Love this!!! You?

Wow!!

Someone said "hard pineapple candy" and that's spot on. At first I thought the wine was off dry but it's just full of gorgeous fruit and acidity. A briny flavor as well.

Buttery and peachy, full body, just the right touch of oak -- great with brioche
