Tasting Notes
We have long been curious about this varietal in Arizona and after a couple years of begging, we finally convinced the folks at Dragoon Mountain Vineyard to part with some. This crisp, refreshing wine has amazingly intense aromatics of tropical fruit and dried flowers and gives us hope that we may see more Arizona plantings of this exciting grape in the future.
