This is an opulent and deep wine. A rich nose is peppered with floral notes with hints of honey, citrus and even a bit of white pepper. Nice mouthfeel, smooth and supple. White flowers and orchard fruit dominate the palette with hints of hazelnut. The wine finishes with a beautiful freshness and mineral presence, is long, complex and very enjoyable.
