This is a beautiful wine with lemon and bitter-honey notes that exibits both balanced acidity and richness. Botrytis at the core shows amazing intensity with a palate that's concentrated and full. Citrus freshness dominates the long, lingering aftertaste. The wine should age well so drink from 2017.
