Wine Review: This almost clear colored value wine opens with a floral and fragrant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is mildly sweet, nicely balanced and refreshing. The flavor profile is a ripe apple with notes of pineapple. I also picked up hints of lemon verbena and minerality as well. The finish remains slightly sweet. My sister Lori would love this wine. I would pair it with Macaroon cookies. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Skipping Stone White is a blend of 90% Cayuga and 10% Vidal Blanc. Very light in color, the wine is aromatic with a bright, crisp, floral nose. Delicious and refreshing on the palate. Slightly off dry with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity. This wine is great by itself, with cheese, a simple meal and is also sensational with spicy foods. Fermented in stainless steel.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
