Light straw in color, this wine offers a bright aroma of lemon, honey and vanilla with hint of orange blossom. The full-bodied flavor is layered with crisp citrus, vanilla bean and flinty mineral accents, for striking balance and structure.
89pts - Wine Enthusiast: With a salty oak entry, this wine invites, showing a touch of reduction and strong barrel presence. Crème brûlée and baked apple give it a richness and length that presents as juicy and fleshy.
