The first impression is lavender, immediately followed by candied citrus peel (a cross of grapefruit and tangerine), and then one immediately senses just a great lushness, that you might associate with a musky musk melon, with the slightest trace of bitterness. Last call for linalool!
The experience of this wine – if I may be very direct - is very much like drinking perfume.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal with a savory course like foie gras or a blue cheese cake appetizer, but also just fine as a dessert wine with a fruit dessert. For a truly stellar blue cheese pairing, try Valley Ford's "Grazin' Girl" Gorgonzola Style Raw Cow's Milk Cheese on a coconut biscuit. Staff favorite pairings include spicy Sichuan hot pot, Korean cuisine, such as Bibimbap or Ojingeo Bokkeum (Spicy Squid Stir Fry), or Thai take out. A bit of spice plays nice when pairing the Moscato Giallo!
