Review:
Vivid straw-yellow. Highly perfumed, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, along with hints of white flowers, honey and fennel that emerge with air. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering penetrating pear, tangerine and honeysuckle flavors that are sharpened and lifted by an undercurrent of zesty acidity. Finishes sappy, mineral and very long, showing fine definition and a touch of lingering florality.
