Peachy and zesty on the nose with nice citrus blossom aromas and hints of lime leaf. Pineapple and ripe citrus fruits on entry firm up a bit on the mid-palate, but this remains rather opulent in the mouth. There’s a lot of flavor here, and it’s pretty well-supported by the acidity, which dominates the finish as the fruit drops away fairly quickly. 85pts
