Wine Review: This almost clear colored blend from John Duval was described by the panel as different and interesting. It opens with a musty apple and dried grass bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and shows good balance. The flavor profile is a tart apple and pear blend with notes of aged oak and pilsner beer. The finish is dry. The panel suggested pairing this nice blend with grilled mako or swordfish. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Attractive pale straw. Nose: Aromas of stone fruits, honeysuckle and Asian spice. Palate: Medium bodied with good texture, mouth feel and balanced mineral acidity. Flavours of nectarine, pear, mandarine and Asian spice give make it for good food pairing, possibilities from seafood to white meat.
