Pure and true expression of Colombard. The wine is authentic to its terroir. The aromas show an early grapefruit concentration, fresh pears, green apple and hints of jasmine. In your mouth, the wine blossoms like a flower, you get all the aromas plus citrus fruit and the wine opens to a very bright citrus blossom flavor. There is a beautiful balance between the acidity, the texture and the richness. It is a pure delight to enjoy with seafood, sushi, grilled fish, Susanna's Caesar Salad, spicy foods, pastas, roasted chicken and strong, creamy or blue cheeses…or simply as an Aperitif.

Wine EnthusiastSweet and sour acidity marks this dry wine, made from a variety that's been out of fashion for decades. With just a touch of oak, its tart tangerine, citron, lemongrass and mineral flavors star. Drink as an offbeat, low-alcohol alternative to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
