Critic Notes

A discreet application of wood surrounds fresh, exotic and cool aromas of both white and yellow orchard fruit with hints of pineapple and green tea. There is strikingly good delineation to the mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess a refined mouth feel before terminating in a driving, linear, dry and wonderfully persistent finish. Note that this is not as complex as it will be in time so some patience will be required if you wish to experience this wine's full potential. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2018+
