This uncommon varietal wine is quite aromatic, redolent with sweet tropical fruits and ripe flowers, fried plantains, lychee, and orange blossoms. The palate is a fascinating blend of Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc profiles, lime, grass, and Indian River white grapefruit plus white flowers and a distinct petrol flavor. Drink with chicken well-rubbed with spices and roasted.
