Description

"Working with a varietal from another country added a complex challenge to making this wine, but it was certainly worth the effort. The 2005 Silver Nectar exceeded my expectations with its great floral aromas, honey, peach and apricot flavors and its firm acid finish.

Tasting Notes

A truly aromatic wine, the Silver Nectar offers aromas of honey and apricots, followed by a soft hint of honeysuckle.

The moderate acidity and forward fruit flavors will complement spicy chicken satay, dim sum, Spanish Paella and beef or pork empanadas.
