"(all verdejo, from ungrafted vines that are now reportedly more than a century old): Hazy yellow. Deeply pitched, smoky pear and peach pit aromas are brightened by gingery spices, a hint of quinine and dusty minerals. Intense orchard and pit fruit flavors stain the palate, picking up citrus zest and bitter pear skin qualities with air. Succulent herb and anise notes linger on the strikingly long, chewy, penetrating finish, which features suave leesy and mineral qualities."
