Wine Description

(From 1996 Vintage) Bronze color. Sappy aromas of pear and honeysuckle. Good concentration but seems a bit hard in the mouth, despite a suggestion of almost cooked ripeness. Shows a distinct dryness in the middle.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Pale orange-gold. Vibrant aromas of tangerine, pineapple, coconut and brown spices, with a slightly roasted botrytis character. Concentrated and lightly saline, with bright, firm acidity giving a penetrating quality to the pineapple and spice flavors. Offers an exhilarating sugar/acid balance and finishes with lovely lingering spicy perfume. Still a bit youthfully rigid: I'd give this a few years to harmonize.
