Aromas of fresh and tart citrus like lemon and grapefruit are followed by notes of almost ripe honeydew. The mid palate is richly textured, with a touch of fatness and subtle hints of smoke. Characteristic grassy and lemony varietal notes are balanced by bright, zippy acids. A well-structured wine with a strong mineral backbone, this wine is enjoyable now but will improve with a year or two of bottle age.
The grapes were hand-picked and softly crushed. The must fermented slowly at low temperatures with occasional battonage.
