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

Flavours of nectarine, pear, mandarine and Asian spice give make it for good food pairing, possibilities from seafood to white meat.
