    Perfectly sweet, fruity, light gewurtz, perfect chilled. Great drinking wine, or paired with a light dessert. Fruity floral nose with peachy, mango, apricot flavors and a hint of vanilla with light spice on the finish. Little to no acid. Would definitely share this with guests; very fun wine to drink.
