    Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. Lean and focused as a young wine, this is packed with fruit and mineral flavors. Spend some time with the wine and you might find orange blossom, lemon and lime pith, peach skin and smoky minerality. The tartness will round out with a few months of bottle age. For any fruits de mer.
