Description:

Beautiful notes of lime zest and jasmine, bone dry and very aromatic. 

Tasting Notes:

"Intense orange and nectarine scents show excellent clarity and power, with spicy mineral, honeysuckle and mineral qualities adding vivacity. Racy, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit flavors pick up richer pit fruit and buttery qualities with air, as well as an exotic touch of anise. Mineral-tinged finishing flavors of pear and orange peel linger with outstanding tenacity and clarity; this reminded me a lot of a high-class Chablis." - Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzers- International Wine Cellar, Sept/Oct 2014  92 points
