WS 2011  86  On the sweet side, w/ tangy balance to ripe pineapple & floral flavors, finishing light.

WE  2011  88  3.2% residual sugar.  All in fine balance, full flavored, fruity & round. Mix of peaches, apricots & Mandarin oranges makes it interesting w/ some complexity.

Winemaker Notes  Bright crispness, subtle sweetness& aromas of jasmine, pear & apple.  Sweetness plays wonderfully w/ fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German).  Alcohol 11.5%  Residual Sugar 3.1%
