Wine Description

Maritime breezes mingle with the fruity aromas and a definitive floral component gently rises and captivates the imagination.  The flavors are pure, clean and linger long after swallowing; allowing you to stare blissfully at the ocean in your real or imaginary deck chair and savor the experience before taking another sip. Simply brilliant.
