Description

Aromatically, this wine is pretty arresting and unforgettable. Notes of white flowers, ginger, orange blossom, jasmine, baked apple and vanilla are abundant on the nose. Upon entry, a bright note of Meyer lemon and minerality hits the palate. In the mid-palate, this wine expands to show great notes of vanilla and green apple, as well as a core of Asian pear. The finish is long but never cloying, and finishes clean with natural acidity in spades.

"The nose on this bottling...combines plump white-fleshed fruit with pithy aromas of orange and grapefruit. It’s fresh on the palate, carving a fine line between elegant structure, bright acidity and fruit flavors of tangerine, lime, Gala apple and papaya." ~ Wine Enthusiast
