Lavalle Staff was Sue-Ann's grandfather... a great lover of everything sweet including toffees, caramels, boxes of chocolate and women! He'd be particularly proud this elegant styled white wine with "medium" sweetness was named after him. Wonderful with spicy foods, light fare and perfect on it's own.

This fun, pleasantly aromatic white wine exhibits white grapefruit and gooseberry notes that leap from the glass. The subtle floral notes are reminiscent of lilac and rose petal. The refreshing acidity on the palate is kept in check with balancing residual sugar. Clean, “grapey” and mouth-watering. Quite memorable. Entirely too easy drinking and leaves you wanting to open another bottle as soon as possible.
