Tassel Ridge Prelude White Wine
An excellent wine from the folks at Tassel Ridge Winery here in Iowa. Prelude is a very nice crisp white wine with a big citris taste (perfect on a hot muggy Iowa summer day). Hints of lemon, lime, orange, pear and a tropical fruit sensation at the end (felt like I just dove into a fruit bowl yum). Excellent balance of fruit and sweetness. I'm told this is their second most popular white wine and I can see why. Made of grapes from both Iowa and California (St Pepin from Ia and Muscat from Ca). Tassel Ridge Winery is one of the top 3 producers here in our state and they are located in Leighton Iowa (SE of DesMoines).
