Caramel, vanilla and creme brulee grace the nose here along with some fennel seed and melony fruit. Broad, supple and yet juicy in the mouth ,this delivers some lovely green apple and melon flavors along with a fair dose of the caramel and creme brulee from the nose. It’s an open, easy drinking style that is fruit forward but with refreshing acids keeping everything lively and adding some bright lemon pith notes to the modest finish. easy to drink and unusually refreshing. The blend of caramel and acid gives this a bit or a cooked orange flavor. 86pts
