This wine has flavors of peach and apricot and they are such juicy flavors. Picture yourself eating a peach that the juice just dribbles down your chin. It's medium sweetness so it won't over power the flavors of the pork or the sweet potatoes. Perfect for a winter night dinner.
Take the time to know good wine.
