Description

"...absolutely terrific, not to mention a fabulous value. Ripe orchard fruit and floral notes meld together in a bright, creamy white to drink now and over the next few years." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...The nose gives aromas of dried hay, beeswax, lemon meringue, red apple skin and pie crust, while the light to medium-bodied palate offers lovely honey-nut flavors lifted by refreshing acidity and finishing long and textured." ~ Wine Advocate 

This white blend showcases bright, fresh acidity backing generous peach and apricot fruit flavors. Enticing spice and mineral notes add complexity.
