Description

"Dried lemon peels, white peach and crushed hazelnuts make for a pretty ripe nose on this bottling. There is a compelling grip to the sip, which clings to the palate with flavors of ripe lemon, tart apple and a light marzipan touch on the finish." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

"...has a restrained nose of bakers yeast, toasted hazelnut, lemon cream and white flowers with notes of toast and pastry crust. Medium to full-bodied, it's creamy textured and has good concentration, tangy acidity and a long, textured finish." ~ Wine Advocate
