"This succulent white displays flavors of melon, peach and grapefruit, overlaid with spicy oak notes. The lively acidity persists on the finish, where a lanolin accent emerges. Best from 2015 through 2022."
An expressive and very fresh nose of pear, white peach and lemon peel leads to detailed and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess a hint of sweetness on the juicy and succulent finish that provides a needed contrast as its agreeably dry and clean.
