The nose offers ripe white fruit aromas such as pears and peaches that are interwoven with delicate citrus and floral notes, such as jasmine. The palate shows rich and concentrated ripe pear, apple and apricot flavors with a light note of minerality. The wine finishes long and complex with crisp, mineral acidity.
"Bright yellow-green. High-pitched perfume of white peach, lime and minerals, complicated by sexy oak. Intensely flavored and subtly sweet, showing much more clarity and verve than the regular 2012 bottling. Strong rocky minerality enlivens the apricot fruit. Finishes firm, dry, brisk and long, with lovely cut and lift."
