Very lightly scented with Asian pear and apple fruit on the nose, along with some face cream and a low nuttiness. This has a pronounced acidic spine and bright citrus flavors early on that are joined by notes of steel and seashells. The minerality is certainly intriguing, but the acid is high even for me. Apple fruit emerges on the mid-palate. Finish shows some low oak notes and plenty of steely, high acid zing. It’s an attractive wine though it does come off as a little raw. 87pts

From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 89 Ponts. Silver Medal. Pale golden color. Aromas of toasty lemon cake, creme brulee, and dried flowers follow through on a round entry to a tangy dry-yet-fruity medium body with ripe pineapple and cherry notes. Finishes with a crisp, refreshing, spicy buttercream accented fade. (tasted on Mar-02-2009)
