Review:
Good full straw-yellow. Reticent aromas hint at tropical fruit, resin, sweet spices and eucalyptus, lifted by a bright lemony touch. Then rich, ripe and juicy, showing noteworthy liveliness to the deep, still brooding mineral and fruit flavors. Finishes long with outstanding limey cut and a hint of talcum powder. Still extremely taut and youthful, this is only starting to show the oily mouthfeel that typifies Greco.

Review:
Flavors of green apple and Asian pear are lightly tart, balanced by lush peach tones and a round, honeyed texture. An undertow of slatey minerality cools and firms the flavors while a wash of salinity refreshes the finish.
