This nervy white shows crackling acidity that carries focused flavors of mineral, grapefruit and fresh herbs. A bit austere, but bracing and balanced. A fine complement to food. Drink now.

Greenish gold. Pungent citrus pith and quinine aromas are brightened by incisive minerality. Vibrant lemon and lime flavors are pleasingly taut and focused, gaining heft with air and taking on a deeper pear quality. Smoothly balances bright citrus and orchard fruit qualities and finishes with impressive clarity and persistence.
