Looking at the color, one would find it hard to believe that this wine comes from a white variety. The nose carries over aromas of balsamic, caramelized sugar (toffee), treacle, espresso and moist pipe tobacco. The palate unveils a medium sweetness with a well-balanced mouth-watering acidity. The harmonious sweet and savory flavors are truly something to experience. This wine pairs extremely well with pecan pie, toffee desserts, and the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
