USA – Washington State, Columbia Valley
The wine exhibits flavours of pineapple, grapefruit, elderflower and spice which linger on the finish. Drink now or save 1-2 years. Serve with roast poultry.

Always a perennial favourite of mine for all sorts of celebration and special events. Pale straw in appearance with a lime tint. On the nose you will find nut, mineral and peach. The wine is medium bodied, dry with bitter almond and citrus flavours.
