$6.00 a glass at Zely & Ritz in Raleigh. Pale gold color. Quite fragrant--lightly floral. Rich tasting with a floral component. Possibly some pineapple on the palate also. Hard to pin down to specifics but rewarding with my Mediterranean chicken wrap. Encourage you to try this unusual Au Bon Climat wine if you have the opportunity.
On the winery website this lists for $18 ($16.20 if you belong to the ABC Club). They describe the flavors as apple and melon (no pineapple) and lavender and marzipan aromatics. I did find something floral there but not sure it was lavender.
