This is packed with dissolved CO2 so expect some fizz here early on. Once the gas dissipates, you’re left with a very fine nose full of iris and apricot over light green citrus fruits. Gossamer-like on entry, this shows elegance and balance with a wispy texture and light yet clear flavors of citrus fruit tinged with a white peach wash. The acidity is fine, carving right down the middle of the palate and adding a light dash of minerality as it goes, but it never detracts from the nicely aromatic fruit in the mouth. The finish shows a fine blend of savory notes, crisp fruits and mineral top notes. Lovely wine, well balanced and ready for enjoying. This really shows very fine mineral cut. 91pts

Very mineral with some CO2 and crisp, tart pear flavors.
