Clear, bright, medium straw gold in color. Clean medium intensity aromas bearing upfront muskiness then sweet canned peaches and pears, pungent honeysuckle, gummy bears, and citrus candies. Medium sweet on the palate, medium-low acidity, medium body, and flavors of tropical fruit, fresh pressed apple juice, sweet lemon, and honey. Pair with a super spicy Mapo tofu or a chilled fruit salad. Recommended. RR
