"Lovely, with a mix of buttered brioche, toasted macadamia nut, citrus oil, white peach and yellow apple flavors that have weight but stay racy and fresh due to the light chalky minerality buried on the finish. Drink now through 2022."

"Pale gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented orchard and pit fruits and a hint of saffron on the incisive nose. Densely packed but lively as well, offering lively nectarine, bitter pear skin and tangerine flavors that show excellent clarity and a repeating mineral nuance. The floral and mineral qualities carry strongly through the finish, which shows impressive clarity and strong tenacity."
