Light-bodied, some sweetness - but not obnoxious. Very nicely balanced -- more like a chablis. Drank with Sushi and it was a good match. This was exactly the right time to drink this 1999 vintage which had won some awards. 
Fruity, ice wine
I like the spicy flavor and I can taste the foxy American grapes. This is not your typical koolaid desert wine. It does not taste like a syrupy concoction of fruit. Drink it at room temp, it does not get harsh. It has a very unique spice that my have as many lovers and haters. I personally love it and find this unusual spicy, cherry flavor an irresistable bargain. especially with my wife's left over valentines day chocolate.
This is a beautiful white wine that is exceptional year round. It is a semi-sweet Riesling-Traminette blend, using Vidal Blanc for added depth. Aromas of melons, citrus fruits, apricots, and delicate flowers highlight the soft finish of this soothing wine. Serve chilled with fruits and cheeses, fish, or spicy foods. It's extremely clear and crisp. I have visited this winery many times and am a Kennel Club Member. Our Dog Blue happens to be their #1 seller. I highly recommend this bottle to anyone that enjoys Rieslings or white wines! Be sure to check out Chateau Morrisette other white and red wines.
