Lots of pear fruit on the nose with nice framing notes of citrus oils a hint of green herb and some dusty mineral notes. Rich in the mouth with a touch of raw nut meat, dried flower, and some fine mineral tones accenting the core of orchard fruit which shows flashes of sweet tropical fruit on the mid-palate. This is fairly rich, with some fleshiness but the finish shows more focus on the moderately long finish. Nicely expressive with a fine combination of fruit, spice and mineral. 89pts

On the nose, very fragrant with tones of citrus, a bit of honey dew melon, and flowers. On the palate, grapefruity a bit acidic and strong minerality. I would definitely buy this wine again if I see it. I recommend paring with oysters and lemon pepper fish.

This juice spends 8-9 months on the lees, giving it creamy complexity and weight on the palate. The nose is full of fresh orchard fruit and pretty, powdery aromas, while the palate is balanced and elegant. The production is tiny: 360 cases!

This wine spends 8 to 9 months on the lees, giving it creamy complexity and weight on the palate. The nose is full of fresh orchard fruit and pretty, powdery aromas, while the palate is balanced and elegant. A minuscule amount of this wine is made: just 360 cases!
