Melange Founder's White Blend

Melange Founder's White Blend

Tasting Notes

Tropical aromas and flavors of guava and ripe pineapple belie this wine's true off-dry composition. Bright acids balance the perceived sweetness and finish cleanly, lingering with hints of white peach, nectarine and flint notes. For optimum enjoyment, serve chilled. This wine makes an excellent suitor to spicy foods but drinks equally well on its own.
