Tasting Notes
Spicy floral notes ride on a cool tropical breeze of guava and a whiff of banana before plunging you into a refreshing dip of the same, swirling with lemon drop, and pear with a splash of lingering butterscotch.  This is a versatile, dry, sumptuous, medium bodied wine with, refreshing acidity that reminds you when you slow down (think snail) “it’s great to be alive”!
