Additional Information

Creamy and full-bodied, with hints of citrus zest, wet stone, and a touch of vanilla. The acidity here is bright and lively. On the palate, it is fresh and nicely balanced with lemongrass and a round mouthfeel that give way to the traditional mineral backbone found in this varietal. A beautiful mixture of fruit and structure.

    "Harmony and a supple texture are the hallmarks of this well-integrated white, creating an ideal foil for lemon tart, apple and baking spice flavors. Firms up on the finish, with a hint of stone. Best from 2020 through 2025. 1,250 cases made, 25 cases imported."
