Whoa! Welcome to Hawaii! This is like a mouthful of the tropics, with everything from coconut oil to banana waffles. Pineapple and peach, mango and hints of honeysuckle are all in the mix, and this aromatic, evocative wine is nicely balanced at 14.1% alcohol. It finishes bone dry, like a twist of lemon.
