Bright straw. Lemon zest, melon and green apple aromas show good clarity and a spicy touch of white pepper. Gently chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter pear skin and citrus pith flavors that deepen and turn sweeter with air. Finishes long and taut, delivering firm, spicy cut and a delicate floral nuance.

Medium straw to the eye, this wine has a nose of pineapple, dried herbs and white flowers. It is zesty on the palate, with flavors of grapefruit, white peach, honeysuckle and bitter almond, along with a hint of dried apricot on the finish.
