Beautiful spring herbs, cut grass, chervil and sorrel on the nose. Cantaloupe, orange, citrus blossoms. Nectarine, tangerine, melon, red apple and fig. Very complex aromas with a perceived mineral high tone.
The wine is fleshy and mouth filling, ripe, medium bodied, big fruit and citrus flavors, finishing very long with wonderful brightness. Pear, peach, green apple, honeysuckle, orange peel, citrus blossom. Expansive and complex. Stunning.
The Brooks Estate is opulent and majestic, and would be amazing with seared tuna, lobster and morels, soft shell crabs or scallops and citrus. Absolutely versatile for a first course or main.
