Some wines are exceedingly versatile as a pairing wine that will go well with just about anything and other wines are best served in a particular setting. The 2001 Harmony from Willowcroft Farm Winery is a wine designed for the dying light of an Indian summer sunset.
The goldenrod color in the glass seems to capture the last of the summer fireflies in its warm amber glow. The nose is filled with summer tastes of honeysuckle and apricots. The gentle attack includes notes of Bartlett pears and ripe peaches. The midpalate expands to include pineapple and light citrus. The finish is delightfully clean on this 2% residual sugar vintage with hints of pureed red delicious apples and cinnamon.
This wine would pair exceedingly well with hard cheeses and shellfish. But it’s best pairing, is as an aperitif among friends as the sun sets just beyond the horizon.
