Another first, Karlo Estates VanAlstine White is an unusual fortified wine blend of property grown Frontenac Blanc and barrel aged Traminette. The nose is reminiscent of fresh apricot and honey with hints of rose. On the palate, tropical notes and citrus blend to interplay with a kiss of hazelnut while balanced sweetness gives way to a lingering finish. It’s been accused of being “Heaven in a glass”. Buy this while you can as it sells out really fast.
Traditionally served as an aperitif when people first arrive with salted nuts or something peppery, it’s meant to help you warm up, relax and get the party started right.
Our VanAlstine White also pairs well as a desert wine with savory treats like “cheesecake”, a nut based créme brule or apple strudel.
