Fresh and vibrant, with ripe, snappy pear, honeysuckle, melon and lemon peel. A touch coarse, but deep and persistent. Sure to flesh out with time.

Light green-gold. Pungent aromas of pear skin, orange, smoky lees and iodine, plus a suave floral overtone. Sappy orchard fruit flavors show serious depth and power, with tangy minerality adding lift. Completely stains the palate and finishes on intense mineral, floral and orchard fruit notes, with superb length and lingering smokiness.
