"Hints of citrus, green-pear peel and leafy fern on the nose lead onto a palate of slight spritz. Here, these flavors coalesce around a lovely Conference pear freshness. The finish is dry, spritzy and mild. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"

"Notes of freshly cut Conference pear have hints of crushed sage, fennel seed and lime peel. The palate trumps with a similar array of flavors that unite citrus freshness and herbal, salty savor, all supported by finely textured yeastiness and that green pear note. Elegant and impeccably balanced in its full-flavored lightness. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"
