2015 vintage. Good balance of texture and acidity. Lemon curd, melon rind, chalky white rocks, dried white flowers, dried herbs, just the right touch of beeswax (a flavor that is sometimes overwhelming in the variety). Blended with 16% Sauvignon Blanc.

Good honey flavors with nice acidity. Over 14% abv but it does not feel like it does.

Lots of stone fruit, rich on the palate, but a clean finish because of no oak used.
