    tasting notes

    Honeysuckle aromas lead to fresh, ripe tropical flavors of star fruit, papaya and mango, with well-balanced minerality. This approachable and fruit driven wine is best served chilled, pairing well with grilled shrimp or shellfish or enjoyed with friends as the grill warms up.
