Tasting Notes

Evoking imagery of golden sunflowers and ripe lemons, this wine’s rich, straw yellow color warmly welcomes you in. Subtle notes of sweet French oak on the nose are immediately enhanced by tart apricot and succulent honeysuckle components. Accompanying this rich presentation are flavors of peach, lemon zest, wild honey, fresh baked bread, and vanilla. The experience culminates in a balanced, lasting finish, highlighted by subtle notes of French oak. Enjoy now until 2026.
