This dry white wine blends the heirloom Greek variety, Malagouzia (Mah lah gou zya`), with the well known Chardonnay.  The result is a bright, gold-yellow color, with a rich body, fruity aroma and a long finish.  Tropical fruits, mainly mango but also kiwi, are rounded out by a hint of butter toffee.  The characteristic mild acidity of Malagouzia, is complimented by a long finish.  


Pairs exceptionally well with sea foods, white meats and poultry,  and yellow cheeses. 


Best served at a temperature of 57 – 60o F.
