More than 30 years of making dry Alsatian wines in the Edna Valley are on display in this classic bottling. The varietal's familiar gasoline nose picks up lightness from fresh apple, crisp nectarine and a macadamia-marzipan touch. The palate is based on very balanced acidity, with flavors of buttered pear and lemon strudel.
