Fruit forward with a long, buttery finish. Delicious on a warm summer day.

Fruity on the nose. Ripened mango and peach. Clean finish. Good with spicy food.

Very educational wine. I like to use this kind of wine to show what is the ABC was. Overwhelming oak, butter and ripe tropical fruits. Try it with popcorn.

Definitely a wine for those who prefer the buttery malolactic style, this wine would be good with food like whitefish in butter Chardonnay source. As a cocktail wine, the butter predominates, overshadowing some nice green apple and grass flavors.

Another terrible mass market wine. It's fairly disgusting and flabby, overoaked and totally ML'ed. G-R-O-S-S.
