What Makes a White Wine so Great?

Think about it in terms of lemonade: When there's too much sugar, it's cloyingly sweet. When there's too much lemon, it's just too tart. When the sugars and acids are in balance, it's bright and delicious.

Next time you try an off-dry white, like our Heritage White, think of that!
