Complex scents of citrus zest, pear, flowers and smoky minerals. Fleshy orchard fruit flavors are firmed by juicy acidity and gain depth and spiciness with air. A ripe melon note comes up on the smooth, spicy, very persistent finish

Zesty and harmonious with expressive aromas of ginger, minerals and licorice.
|2011: 89 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: " Light, bright yellow. Aromatic nose displays ripe citrus and melon scents lifted by zesty minerality. At once fleshy and vivacious, the flavors of melon, orange and pit fruit expanding with air. Finishes with good persistence and an echo of sweet citrus fruits. "
