"The Bee is made of 50% of Muscat Canelli, which is blended with 47% Arneis and 3% Cortese. It refreshes and intrigues, offering pure pleasure and a challenge to the palate in its tension of acidity and stony earth. It indeed evokes honeycomb and wildflowers, with a salty brininess that keeps it in the brain long after it's gone."

"(50% Muscat Blanc, 47% Arneis, 3% Cortese) A dry, exotic, and aromatic white that doesn't stray to an over the top or sappy level is hard to find, and it was the rational behind the varietal choices and picking decisions. Macerated orange blossoms, wet river stones, spiced honey, ginger, gardenia, lemon peel, salty ocean air, and rangpur lime all balance in the aromas. The mouth shows great texture and weight without ever getting heavy. The finish is racy and full of spicy acidity."~Distributor Notes

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Your Next Favortite Wine!

"This intensely aromatic white blend makes it easy for you to dive right into your first glass! Right away you'll notice the notes of a delicate floral bouquet, lemon rind, and fruit, such as melon and peaches. Succulent peaches dominate the palate, but not too overwhelming that you'll miss out on the bright acidity and the touch of minerality. With a slight zest of lemon also on the palate, this rich white is balanced and rather too enjoyable. Would pair beautifully with your holiday meal this season, such as savory turkey or roasted chicken."

A nice white

"A well made white blend, it goes well with seafood, is also a sipper. We're getting more."
