Bright but golden yellow, this wine smells like briny honeydew served on a bed of gardenias. It’s well-rounded with a medium body, heightened acidity, and a waxy, oily texture with flavors of honeysuckle, soft lemons, green apple, and mango. There are also notes of, in the words of Ron Burgundy, “Lanolin?”

After a few hours of breathing, this wine was quite enjoyable. Crisp and refreshing, light on fruit.

Honeydew melon, mango, sea salt, acacia, honeysuckle, gardenias, beeswax. Rounded acid, medium bodied, juicy-oily texture, long floral-salty-slightly bitter finish. Mineral driven, briny, excels with food, balances texture with salty-floral notes.
