Brilliant. Bright. I was awestruck how much I enjoyed it. Great acid and barrel integration. Full of white fruits, nuts, brine and hot cinnamon. Great balance

Pale golden color with appealing apple, melon, mandarin orange, key lime zest, and a bit of orange blossom aromas. On the palate, it's rich, round, and shows generous acidity with melon, mandarin orange, key lime zest, vanilla and a bit of brown spice flavors. Long finish.2013 vintage.

Beautiful wine. Massive melted butter diacetyl aromas. Very lactic on the palate. Would have like a bit more acidity/burgundy to balance. I always love hard to find whites from red houses. This is a fun wine.
