    Aromas of lemon curd, canned pineapple and mineral. Full-bodied, with lots of waxy, honey and applesauce flavors, followed by a medium finish. Drink now. 15,830 cases made.

    Beautiful aromas of white peaches, crushed rocks, candle wax, and lemon rind along with a touch of quince emerge from this medium-bodied, crisp, flavorful effort. Excellent acidity as well as a long finish suggest it will drink well for 10-15+ years.

    Very simple muted nose. Slightly catty aromas and pretty heavy - slightly astringent. Rather rustic.

    Nice & crisp, without the overbearing grassy flavor of some Sauvignon Blancs.

    This wine seduces with its subtle beauty. Light on the palate, but mind-boggling in its complexity, with gardenia, jasmine, smoke and lemon curd and only a slight suggestion of gooseberry. But what I love the most about this wine is its minerality - you can almost taste the gravelly soil of the appellation. Truly a standout and in its prime drinking window. To wait any longer would be to risk the wine losing its acidity.
