Greenish gold. Pear, melon and musky lees on the nose, plus a hint of iodine. Juicy, plump, concentrated orchard fruit and melon flavors are given bite by bitter lemon zest and are firmed by tangy acidity. Expansive and gently sweet on the finish, which leaves an echo of toasty lees behind.
Toasty and warmed up on the bouquet by butterscotch and peach melba, but overall it keeps its cool-climate personality. The palate is juicy, but that only helps propel the apple, green banana and nut-driven flavors in the wine. Slightly creamy on the finish.
