reflective, evenly concentrated straw with golden hue and a hint of green. Initial aromas are from fermentation, yeast esters, clotted cream, confectionary sugar, and pear with a touch of banana. Primary fruit aromas are neutral but ripe, pineapple, lemon curd, and baked pear. A dry wine with medium, mouthwatering acidity. Full bodied with a smooth viscosity, touch of astringency. 13.8% ABV lends warmth to the lips. Medium complexity, medium plus concentation. Medium finish is balanced and elegant rather than powerful featuring baked apple, baking spices, and light brown sugar

Pairs well with heavy oil dishes. Cooked a tilapia the second night pan fried in oil. Flavors complimented well with this wine. Sweet textures that needed a day to open. Heavy fruit flavors, white grapes, pears and other acidity's. Would consider this a low cost Chardonnay that you could pair. Would opt to spend a bit more money for a better experience.
