Crystalline in appearance, this wine offers ripe fruit aromas of nectarine, kiwi and crisp Pink Lady apples, without being too flowery. Lots of minerality and lime pith appear on the lively palate, showing just a touch of tropicality but honing in on the grassy lemon-peel line. Ripe apples show on the finish.
