Sweet salinity in a bottle. Pears and honey sing the lead, salinity and ginger give a strong doo-wop backup. Mouth-feel is very round, gently coating the mouth. Acids give a zing that sneak out from under the fruit and leads to a sweet citrus driven finish, white grapefruit and key lime pie. Pair with jerk shrimp, like the jerk shrimp flatbread with mango salsa from Indianapolis’ Taste of the Caribbean food truck, letting the wine’s mildly sweet cool the jerk heat. Highly Recommended (92).
