The aromas jump out of the glass with a complex array of lime, yellow pear, and stone fruits mixed with toasted almond. Hints of melon add a top note to the wonderful nose. In the mouth, this wine really shines with the bright acidity that carries a multitude of flavors along the way. Notes of pear, stone fruit, and melon combine with flavors of nutmeg to offer a rich profile with incredible focus. The hallmark minerality and crushed rock texture from this site shine through on the mid-palate and carry all the way to the elegant finish. Wow!
