Lori scored this wine: 89/100
"To quote Sandhill Winemaker, Sandy Leier: My goal is to promote a lot of lychee character in the aroma and flavour profile. " She certainly has achieved her goal - this wine sings lychee! Add in some melon and white stone fruit and you have a very aromatic wine.
Lychee again on the palate but with some crisp acidity to offset the higher sugar levels (17.4 g/l). A fairly long persistent finish of - you guessed it - lychee!
This is a nice fruity, low alcohol (11%) wine that would be versatile with a lot of food. Thai, curries, lightly grilled chicken, Asian dishes with a bit of zing and goat cheese to name a few.
