Flag Hill 2013 Cayuga White Wine

Flag Hill 2013 Cayuga White Wine,
 $10.39-$13.95, 87 points, poured a lovey bright golden color trending clear at the glass shallows.
Aromatically semi-sweet with apple, peach, and honeysuckle.
Light-plus body carried fair acidity with a medium sweet pear, apple, honey, and just a hint of citrus flavors. Texturally, this wine is a quaffer, but it was very good as a cold aperitif as well.
Finished fair with black pepper, a hint of tangy slightly tart tangerine, and a well integrated 10.5% alcohol.
Cayuga white wine is a mid-season ripening grape coming from crosses of the hybrids Schuyler and Seyval Blanc. Paired well with sautéed sea scallops.
I was pleasantly surprised as to how much I liked this white wine, being that dry wines are my thing, however I can think of many reasons why you'll want to try the Flag Hill 2013 Cayuga White Wine, not the least being that Jeff Chidester recommends it.
