Clear pale yellow with medium intensity. Beautiful aroma, fresh peaches, apricot, light citrus, and clean wet grass. Very lively a slight creamy note develops. Lots of stone fruit and bright moderate acidity (7/10). Medium body with a smooth texture. Excellent structure and love the complexity. Keeps adding deeper white and tropical fruit notes as it opens up. White floral notes too like acacia on the nose. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2026.
