Pretty golden in color.

Showing Sweet lemons, honey, red apples, melons, pears, tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas and light spices.

Full bodied and syrupy with high acidity and fat legs.

This is a delicious sweet white wine from Sonoma Mountain.

Rich, thick and sweet with enough acidity for the high sugars. Showing nice complexity and a nice mouthfeel.
