Wine Review: In the glass this wine is a sparking golden yellow color. A complex nose of pear, light lime, ginger, dry grass and vanilla to start. On the palate, it is creamy and silky, medium bodied and nicely balanced with medium acidity. I found flavors of pear, minerality and melon with vanilla oak and lemon. The finish lingers nicely with plenty of buttery notes. You could sip this on the beach, or it would go well with veal piccatta. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: A light golden hue, the 2017 vintage is layered on the nose, with enticing scents of warm brioche, roasted almonds, citrus and honeysuckle. Entry is soft, and the palate features a distinctive creaminess, filling and slightly coating the mouth. Flavors of lemon blossom mingle with toasted oak and a hint of buttery richness. A vibrant acidity offers balance and freshness, lingering on the finish.
