Teresa’s Notes –
Aged 4 months on lees in French barrels, this is a premium white wine of ripe golden peaches, exotic fruits & dried apricots.
The pictures on the labels of the Atlantis wine collection are from the film Jason and the Argonauts…this wine is a mermaid !!.
Highly recommended…best served lightly chilled but not icy cold.
