You ever have one of those moments when you can't decide on what just happened, and it's hard to separate the combination of two things? Well, this just happened to me.

Tokai is a lovely grape, and I've probably had the Trebbiano grape before in the last two years, but this is the first time in my wine experiences where I have had to actually name them (I love this job).

The Tokai grape gives this wine it's little bit of dry aspect [and I believe the slight taste of apple], but at the same time, I am getting just the most subtle but interesting amount of spice (nutmeg or coriander) crossed with a trace amount of acidity (lemon).

This wine is probably best with lighter fare, or even chicken with a nice white sauce on it, or anything with pesto or basil.
