Too young, but great wine. Fresh, crisp, Nice fruit with acidity. Will need to age a bit.

2013 vintage. Very dry, understated, med-body, sensible with the Central Kitchen menu.

Mineral-driven. If there was a poprocks of limestone and green apple, this would be it. Green apple, pear, lemon peel, wet limestone, paired well with the local tomato gazpacho and the cheese plate.

Smells like flowers. Tastes like a fun chat with a good friend on a sunny late afternoon

Ripe peach and juicy citrus. Acidity cuts through the ripe fruit character making this wine feel brisk and fresh.
