Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color offers a woody nose with aromas of vanilla, caramel and coconut. On the palate, this wine is round and distinctive with a coated finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
This wine is a tribute to the famous "fog" of the area. Each summer morning, a thick fog, pushed by the winds of the Pacific, is formed above the San Francisco Bay, engulfing as it passes, the Golden Gate Bridge.
