Bright gold. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet, and yet explosively sweet with flavors of fresh nectarine, scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. The sweetness pours out of the freshness, so it's impossible to taste them apart. The flavors last, perhaps because it's the kind of wine you'll want to roll around in your mouth over and over. Glorious.
(From 2010 Vintage) Richly textured, with an opulent feel. Concentrated, the fruit buried in the dense flavors. It makes for a big, powerful wine, with long aging future.
