Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Delicate lemon yellow. Vibrant aromas of ripe apple, pear, vanilla, and notes of clove perfume on the nose. Layers of citrus, mineral, and a hint of honeysuckle are interwoven to give an enticing and complex bouquet. The palate is rich and full-bodied with bright vibrancy and creamy texture. Concentrated flavors of Fuji apple, pear tart, and vanilla bean are wrapped in a core of minerality and layers of cream for a well-structured and balanced palate. The velvety mouthfeel leads to a long finish of Meyer lemon, pear, and honey.
