Tasting:

    Chilled before drinking. Clear, absolutely colorless. Light lemon, Granny Smith apples and ripe melon aromas. Smooth, inviting and tart with a tad of spritz mouthfeel, light body and a 200-grit texture. Filled with lemon, lime and chilled apple flavors with hints of honey. Light yet crisp acidity and a long tart lemon finish. WOW, an unfamiliar grape that really rekindled our wine drinking tonight!!! It was light, with delicate fruit tastes, low per cent alcohol and a trace of bubbles…simply a pure delight!!! So VERY refreshing and easy drinking and we called it an awesome care-free and delicious every-day white wine.
