A warm vintage, medium lemon color with aromas of white fruits and wet stone aromas. On the palate flavors of ripe apple & peach, very complex, lively acidity. Long finish ending with mineral and sweet honey character, should age well, but great now!

Pretty. Almost gold in color, bruised apple/pear, week old flowers, wet wool, broad mouthfeel, wet stone, bright acid and a long finish. Great stuff.

Chamomile, quince, bruised apple, honey and intense bees wax aroma. Not the cleanest nose, suggestive of Muenster. Freshness and minerality are lovely with excellent length and focus on the palate but the aromatic profile will be a turnoff for some.
