Wine Description

(2002 Vintage) Layered aromas of mango, peach, nectarine and citrus dominate the nose, underscored by more subtle notes of honey, caramel and light smoke. The wine is fresh and citrusy on entry into the mouth, deepening and becoming richer on the mid-palate as flavors of lemon crème brûlée, stone fruits, and creamy butter fold in. The finish is long and complex, combining notes of honey and citrus with a lush, mouthfilling texture.
