This pale lemon colored wine is expressly aromatic yet balanced with layers of structure and complexity. Initial aromatics show hints of elderberry flowers, Asian pear, green apple, honeydew melon and lime. The medium acidity cuts through a collection of grapefruit and herbs and leaves your palate coated with a pool of minerality. The creamy texture in the mid palate is derived from months of aging on lees and provides this delicate wine with a touch of power and length in both the nose and palate. The layers of stone fruits, guava and passion fruits are blanketed by a complex and long elevated finish. This wine is rich and bright yet lively and elegant.
