Five grape varieties from different vineyards gave this wine an unbelievable complexity. As the Gewurtztraminer and Pinot Gris gives the blend crispiness and freshness, Muscat brings tropical fruits aromas and flavors while Semillon provides a great structure for pairing with food. Chardonnay adds a touch of clean, white peach flavors to this balanced, lovely composition.

Wine was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks and bottled soon after.

Tasting notes:
Attractive yellow and green colors is the first think you will see in your glass. Layers are full of tropical fruit aromas. Clean and crisp, with touches of white peaches and mango this wine is elegant and delicate. Symphony of flavors is developing all the way until a long finish. Layers will be a great compliment to many spicy, sweet or sour dishes. Enjoy it young.
