Intriguing on the nose with aromas of hazelnuts and smoke veiled in orange flowers, citrus rind and resin, this full-bodied white from the Pošip grape is deliciously multifaceted. Dry and savory on the palate, it's flecked with hints of fruit and spice—spiced poached pears and dried orange peels—and a lingering finish that ends on a rich nut skin and nut oil note.
