Silky_Sticker“Bright gold in color, the nose reveals aromas of lychee and ripe white peaches. The characters are very clean and true to the varietal. This is a medium-bodied wine with silky fruits and balanced acid. On the palate, pronounced flavors of peach cobbler are balanced by acidity that seems to sustain the finish for some time.” – Joe Dobbes, winemaker
