"Distinctive bouquet with a core of minerality and varietal fruit signatures. Apple and pear skin, sweet lemon and blossoms, a gentle white pepper spice. Dry on the palate with a core of fruit, adding a smooth satin texture. Abundant acidity, white spice and a floral mineral quality. Well made, decent finish, lots to like."
