Impressive white peaches, nectarines and chalky, oyster-shell minerals. The palate’s very crisp and elegant with power. White peaches and peach kernel flavors. Long and fresh.

A pungent mix of exotic fruit, citrus notes and floral aromas precedes the racy yet relatively dense flavors that possess good dry extract as there is a real sense of volume here as well culminating in a sweet but complex finish.

Light and lively on the nose with some green fruit. Good and racy and really quite delicate.
