Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant and pale straw in color, the aromas are still tight and compete for attention with citrus fruit and orange blossoms nose, an impressive crushed wet stone character and hints of flintiness. The attack on the palate is bright and light, yet finely textured with a mandarin orange character, focused and precise, the citrus and stony character lingers on the palate with an elegant finish.
