Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear with only the very slightest tad of golden color. Floral, grassy and melon aromas. Rich creamy mouth feel and a gentle sweet, oily citrus and tropical fruit taste. A medium-length finish with light acidity and topical fruit flavors. It was good with the shrimp but I would not buy it again.

    She said: Refreshing light fragrance of floral with hints of citrus leads to a sweet creamy taste with plenty of body and rich acidity. The finish is medium length but leads to an odd after taste that bears no resemblance to the aroma or taste. Delicious with the shrimp. The best part of the tasting experience was leaning that it was made from grapes left on the vine and not harvested until the grapes were frozen…amazing!!!
