Locations Wine Corse

If yellow was a flavor, this wine would be it. 

Locations Wine Corse Corisca, France

This wine pours a delicate pale gold into the glass. Vibrant and engaging fruit aromas include yellow apples, nectarines, mangos, and lemons. Balancing out the fruit are notes of ginger, jasmine, spice, and almonds. Underlying  all lies is a long vein of minerality. The wine enters the palate with a silky mouth-feel, quickly giving way to lively and prominent acidity. Mid-palate notes of nutmeg and dried herbs emerge, ending with a long lemon zest and rosemary roasted almond finish. A lively and refreshing wine that tastes like yellow.

Pair with cedar plank salmon, roasted chicken with cauliflower, Asian chicken salad, and crab cakes.
