Impressively clean, concentrated and creamy. The lovely mid-palate unctuous is smoothed over by the invigorating acidity. Sheer class!

Honeysuckle and oak nose. Oat bread, oak, and minerals on the palate. Moderate acid finish.

aromas of apples, light buttery, very balanced, slight hints of oak near the end, and low acidity.

Light, smooth, easy drinking with a delicate pineapple finish. Would pair well with charcuterie or meal.

Mild tasting with slight citrus and oak. Bit of pineapple. Very dry. Good sipping or with grilled stuffed chicken breasts with peta. Is 2014.
