Bright, clear, pale wheat sheaf
Richly aromatic with tropical essences of passionfruit, lychee nut, and mango with a hint of exotic allspice and honeysuckle.
This wine is slightly off dry, and the palate is deceptively lush and mouth filling showing tropical melon fruits first and foremost. Honeydew and dragonfruit may come to mind then give way to a rich plush ruby grapefruit framed by a slight Indian spice. Acidity balances the rich tropical textures and sends the message to the consumer that more may be necessary.
A tropical island where Reggae and surfing are the national pastimes. Beautiful people, sand and palm trees are the conversation pieces, and you have nowhere else to be but where you are. Fill a cooler with wine and head out on the water in the hot sun with your best friends, bold conversations, and don’t forget to leave the cell phones on the beach.

Grapes were selectively hand harvested and sorted, and pressed to tank gently to avoid releasing any unwanted green tannic components from stem and seeds. Juice was then cold settled and fermented cold for 17 days to encourage the wanted fruit forward aromatics.
Food Pairing Notes
Fabulous to drink well chilled on it’s own on really hot days. A must have wine for the spice lovers that gravitate toward with Asian or fusion cuisine, spicy crab, crayfish or pork accompanied by a wildly bright salsa and sweet potatoes. Japanese or Indian curries will mate forever with this hard-to-say Alsatian love…we affectionately call this wine ‘Gew’.
