Pale and lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits with yeasty and toasty oak aromas, sat on lees for 6 months. On the palate flavors of crisp apple and peach with citrus zest and nutty oak notes, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ finish ending with fruit, toasty oak and mineral character. Pair with a lane or red snapper with a tomato garlic compote topping.

Great balance. Easy to love. Good minerality.

I like this version. Still probably needs some time. Nose of lemon balm, peach, stone, grass. Palate is nice with a subtle hint of wood. Creamy lemon, tart apple and pear, lemongrass, citrus, more stone fruit, tiny bit of ocean water. Really nice.
