Fairly pale straw-yellow.  Attractive lift to the aromas of mandarin orange and peach syrup; smells a bit like a particularly sweet Moscato d'Asti. A silky fruit bomb on the palate, sweet but not thick, with good grapefruity acidity giving shape to the fruit salad flavors. Finishes with very good perfumed length. Use this in place of the sorbet course.

The 2011 Joseph Phelps Eisrébe is made from 100% Scheurebe from the Spring Valley Ranch Vineyard in St. Helena. It offers succulent aromas of ripe pineapple, sweet nectar, ginseng tea and honeysuckle. Richly textured with lots of viscosity.
