Tasting Notes: Since understanding what the grape varieties in this blend contribute to this wine greatly helps in its appreciation, here is a breakdown of the grapes, and the general characteristics they add to this wine. Pinot Blanc - is a crisp, bright grape variety that gives the wine a hint of peach and citrus fruit flavors. Pinot Gris - adds structure, body, and richness, it also imparts rich apricot fruit flavors. Sylvaner - is a lighter-bodied grape variety that brings a subtle earthiness to the wine.  The Schreyer Edelzwicker is a fun, easy-drinking wine that makes an excellent aperitif. Its wonderful aromatics and bright fruit make it a perfect match for Thanksgiving day food, fish, poultry, and Asian cuisine.
