Vibrant acidity and minerality (characteristics of the vintage) are present in this beautifully fruity effort, as well as notes of smoky hazelnuts, buttered citrus, and loads of freshness and definition. It should drink nicely for three years.

Green-gold. Sexy aromas of pineapple, melon and white peach are lifted by a floral note. Deep pit fruit and honeydew flavors coat the palate and are braced by tangy minerals. Gains weight and sweetness on the long, juicy finish. I'd drink this suave wine now, for its exuberant fruit.

Medium-light golden yellow; attractive, spicy, apple and pear aroma with a hint of tangerine; medium-full to full body; crisp, lemony, green apple flavors with firm acidity; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended.
