This is named for the white flowers that grow between the the vineyard's rows. It opens with soft cumin and fivespice scents, building toward clean raspberry and lollipop-like cherry fruit. A wet rock minerality adds a zing of freshness. The word charming comes to mind, from the first zippy sniff on through the light, pretty finish.
