Perfect pairing with Salmon Cakes.

Medium pale yellow in color. Vibrant and expressive nose with layers of apples, pears, a bit creamy and citrus. Crisp and tangy acidity (7.5/10) with a light plus to medium body. The mouthwatering acidity carries through the flavors on the palate with lemon and lime zest, some tropical notes and a touch of oak influence. Solid minerality in the long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023. (91+)

2013 - a little exotic at first but a little diffuse, flavor wise.

The sour lingers and turns just a tad bitter. Still intrigued.
