Elegant, creamy, and full of fruit. Pears and apples and figs, oh my! Chard haters, suck it. This is a red wine drinkers white wine.

Great citrus noise with a touch of honey and creaminess on the palate.

The most striking thing about this wine was the very creamy, buttery brioche flavors, along with lemon and pear. Apparently achieved through natural malolactic fermentation, along with extended lees contact. No oak (yay!). Well balanced with nice crisp acidity. Age maybe accounts for the lovely gold hints in the color? All around delish!
