Orange blossoms, honeysuckle and acacia rush up to greet you on the nose. These are quickly followed by pear, white peach, apricot, slate, darkly toasted oak, white tea and a hint of English toffee.
Juicy and complex on the palate, with flavors of Pineapple, yellow peach, nectarine, creamed honey, Meyer lemon, dried hay, and lychee, with hints of almond and subtle white pepper.
Stock up on this brilliant perfect for winter white.
Pretty, pale, golden yellow with perfect clarity through and through. On swirling the wine, it shows a tight and springy surface that settles quickly, leaving behind chubby legs that meander slowly down the glass wall.
