While it's golden in color, the wine isn't oaky or over the hill. Scents of buttercup, honeysuckle, baked apple and melon lead to a round, almost Burgundian-like mouthfeel. The flavors of melon, apple and peach are solid, and the finish is naturally creamy from the 50% Gewürztraminer in the blend—Macabeo comprises the other 50%.
