"Gold bright color. Floral aromas and flavors of pineapple, ginger, ripe pear, and nectarine with a silky, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, distinctive, medium-long finish with suggestions of lemongrass, lime, toast, and river stones with fruit tannins and light oak. Delivers layers of fruit and crisp apple and lemon with just a touch of elegant oak and old world minerality to make it a glass that is oh so difficult to put down."
