Earthy aromas at the outset subside to reveal bright tangerine, honey and saffron notes on this intensely fruity, medium-sweet wine. It's punchy on the palate, with streaks of sweet mango and peach preserve, but anchored by hints of spice and dust that are complex and intriguing. This finishes long, with a slick of honey and wax.
