Winemaker's Notes

Pale yellow with notes of lemon, peach and tropical fruit aromas. Round, ripe and savory with a slightly exotic personality. It's nicely textured and over-delivers in the finish. Excellent minerality.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright gold. Smoky peach and pear aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and lemon pith. Deep, expansive tangerine, nectarine and poached pear flavors are nicely lifted by white pepper and bitter quinine. Distinctly rich for the region but quite lively as well. Finishes with firm grip and lingering spiciness, leaving sweet citrus and pit fruit notes behind. According to the importer, yields were off by 40% in 2012, which likely accounts for the wine's uncommon weight and power."
