Tasting Notes

Silky and focused by vibrant acidity, this wine offers lovely texture and flavors of apricot, Fuji apple, honeysuckle, lemon wax and subtle spice and smoke. Mouthwatering, with a snap of salinity on the finish. Drink now through 2025.

Score: 93Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, November 2012

Bright yellow. Orange flower, mint and tropical fruit on the sexy nose. Then very fresh and racy in the mouth, with refined flavors of mint, minerals and liquid slate framing the spicy white stone fruits. Finishes suave and long, with a lovely sugar/acid balance (123.5 g/l residual sugar and 6.85 g/l total acidity).
