In the glass

A radiant golden-yellow hue glows in the glass. Fresh aromas of Meyer lemon and yellow pear are deepened by white truffle and hazelnut undertones. The palate is gracefully balanced between texture and acidity, and the finish between lushness and invigorating citrus-pith zest. A wine that pairs naturally with roasted poultry, fish, warm vegetable dishes, and cream sauces.
