This wine is patterned after the lovely white wines of the Graves district of Bordeaux. The wine has a luminous pale straw color with a glint of chartreuse in the sunlight. Fragrant white peach and sweet grapefruit aromas lead into a zingy refreshing palate of crisp apple, Bosc pear, and white grapefruit. The finish lingers with a mouth-coating sweet/tart melange of Honey Crisp apple, white passion fruit, and citrus peel. About five seconds after one swallows, a savory aftertaste from the Semillon appears reminiscent of a fine sake.
Pairing Suggestions: If there is a finer wine to pair with the wonderful Lake Superior whitefish, please tell us! Ditto for Walleye. The naturally high acidity of this wine cleanses and refreshes the palate after a bite of these local delicacies dripping with butter. It is perfect for spring risotto with wild asparagus tips and buttery morels. It is divine with wild ramp vichyssoise.
