Wonderful fresh fruit aromas of honeysuckle, passion fruit and guava, with quince and yellow plum. There is a pretty floral element of white flowers and orange mist, and spring rain on the concrete. The mouth feel is lean and wiry. Intensity in the crisp, bracing, acidity, and notes of tangerine, nectarine, peach and green apple. Purity of fruit and a persistent citrus finish makes this such a fun and lively wine. Hints of chervil, tarragon and herb garden with a perceived minerality and amazingly bright, exciting finish.
This is a perfect aperitif wine, which could go well with oysters, snappy cold shrimp cocktail, Dungeness crab or vegetable crudités. A perfect summer party starter for the ice bucket!
