Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Iowa White Blossom
Iowa White Blossom is a dry, white wine that offers aromas of tropical fruits, including pineapple, and citrus. Pineapple, nectarine, and white peach dominate the palate, and the finish hints of green apple. Made entirely from Edelweiss grapes grown in Mahaska County, Iowa, Iowa White Blossom pairs well with fish, chicken, Asian stir-fry, and Caribbean jerk-seasoned dishes. Serve chilled.
