"Vivid yellow-gold. Expressive aromas of pear, lemon pith and melon; lively mineral and ginger notes come up with air. Sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are lifted by an undercurrent of zesty minerality and pick up a floral quality on the back half. Juicy and seamless in texture, finishing with fine clarity and gently chewy persistence. - Josh Raynolds"
