There are classic notes of orange Creamsicle and apple blossom with grilled Asian pear in the nose. It follows up with clean and lean flavors of Asian pear and Gala apple, backed by peach skin bitterness and dried apricot in the finish. Suggested pairings include this Food Network recipe for Shrimp and Vegetable Yellow Curry.
