Northwest Winds - LW

Northwest Winds - LW

Northwest Winds is a blend of the classic white wine varieties; Chardonel, Viognier, Vidal Blanc, Chardonnay, Albarino and Petit Manseng. The medium-bodied wine expresses lovely, enticing aromas of vanilla, white peach, lemon, papaya and apple crisp. There is a wonderfully viscous mouthfeel that flows into a long lingering finish of baking spice, citrus, and vanilla custard. Sip on this beautifully balanced wine while gentle breezes waft across the bow of your boat or the comfort of your deck.
