Sips of the Week
Winemaker’s Notes: Golden yellow color, clear, bright and transparent. Aroma of walnut, vanilla (hints of white chocolate) and butter. Full-bodied, pleasant and soft on the palate with lingering finish. Pairs well with seafood, shellfish, white meat, pasta with white sauce and seafood risotto. It also goes well with dishes seasoned with curry.
