Saviah Cellars - Distinctive Wines from the Walla Walla Valley

One word description…Wow! Spicy aromas of lychee fruit, honey, orange peel and rose petals. This late harvest wine is delicious… tasting of sweet pear and honey crisp apples with a finish that lingers. Serve chilled with sliced apples, nuts and Roquefort cheese. Also pairs well with curries, Asian or spicy dishes. This wine will drink well tonight or put some away for 10 years for a super special occasion.
