Tasting Notes: LaCrescent is a luscious, brilliantly balanced, semi-sweet white wine that starts with an aromatic bouquet of orange blossoms, followed by rich flavors of peach, apricot, and citrus, ending with a refreshing crisp finish, reminiscent of a drier, crisp Riesling.
Pairing: Due to its medium-body and hint of sweetness, LaCrescent pairs well with spicy foods such as Mexican or Asian dishes, bold cheeses, seafood with butter and creamy white sauces, or refreshing on its own!
