Pale, bright yellow. Broad aromas of citrus fruits, butter, toasted bread and minerals. Rich, ripe and nicely concentrated, with sexy stone fruit flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Full and pliant but not at all heavy thanks to its lingering aftertaste of dusty minerality. A superb showing today.

Rich, yet with delicate lemon and green fruit notes in this austere version. A bit disjointed, with a grapefruit- and vanilla-tinged finish. This has structure, so give it time.

This too is floral but more elegant with subtle spice hints plus a touch of apricot and white pear that leads to pure and quite finely detailed middle weight flavors that are intense, sweet and minerally on the citrus-infused flavors. Lovely effort fashioned in an understated style where the punch and stony character arrive right at the finish.
