    Winemaker Notes
    Honey poached tropical fruit fragrance with candied almonds on the side comes wafting up from the glass. The silky fruit flavors follow in the mouth with the honey making another appearance to liven and enrich the palate. A long, fruity and very pleasant, not too sweet finish leaves one asking for another bite of dessert so another sip will follow. Try it with spicy Asian or Middle Eastern foods as well.
