Taste/Nose: Honeydew Melon on the nose. Overtones of white grapefruit. Bright opening with lots of fruit, but still dry.
Food Pair: I love this wine with Oysters, Sushi and several fish dishes. Good with a palate cleansing sorbet or salad with strong fruits and vinaigrettes.
Label: My sister in law’s (Joan) sketches from ABT. Gene’s niece, Danielle is a stage manager at ABT allowing Joan to sketch some of the dancers.
Misc.: This wine, although dry, is a wine many sweet wine drinkers like because of the fruit flavors.
Fun Fact: A grape developed in the 1930s that grows well in colder climates. It is grown as close as 500 miles from the Arctic circle in Sweden where it is used to make iced wine.
