"Borealis is blend of 38% Riesling, 24% Muller-Thurgau, 23% Pinot Gris, and 15% Gewurztraminer, certified organic by Stellar Certification Services and made with organic grapes from our vineyard. Every time we worked with this wine the winery filled with the most beautiful aroma of fresh flowers and tropical fruit. Now that it's in the bottle that theme has held true. The aroma practically covers the full fruit spectrum with notes of peach, yellow apple, pineapple and with bright citrus popping out, accented with whiffs of cut hay and fresh flowers. On the palate it starts with a soft, slightly sweet expression of ripe fruit of peach and pear with a crisp acid balance and citrus zing, which evolves to a delicious long, crisp finish of grapefruit and lime." - Winery Notes
