With its touch of oakiness and sun-ripened fruit, this fuller bodied white wine pairs incredibly well with the richness of salmon, the creaminess of polenta and the tang of lemon. If this wine could talk it would tell you it loves the finer things in life, like a great meal and good friends to go with it.
