Winemaker’s Notes

Pale yellow hue. Brilliant scents of tangerine, mandarin orange, ripe fig, and some flinty notes give way to this special blend. With a second swirl, there are elements of papaya, mango,  then after another swirl, peach,  apricot and melon. This wine just will not stop gaining complexity in the nose. Upon taste, the brisk acidity holds the array of flavors true to the aroma profile, with the stone fruit qualities slightly in the lead. The palate exhibits wonderful complexity and has a refreshing, subtle finish.
