Clear, pale, watery gold in color. Gentle aromas of white peaches, tart green grapes, lemon zest, thyme, and sandy beaches. Dry, medium-high acidity, medium-light body, and soft flavors of citrus, melon rind, and sun dried herbs. Dangerously easy to drink. Pair with grilled zucchini and summer squash. Highly recommended.
