Starts with an aroma of sunny meadow. Flavors of ripe Granny Smith apple with a kick of ginger. Very fresh with good acidity, would pair well with roasted vegetables or a creamy, cheese-y casserole. This delicate white wine is somewhere in between a Chardonnay and a Sauvignon Blanc, creamier than the latter but lighter than the former.
