This bottling combines the variety's zippy character with a touch of ripeness, which makes it accessible to many palates. Aromas of fresh-cut apple and green papaya meet with a very stony minerality on the nose. The palate's powerful texture and sizzling acidity carry riper flavors of Gala apple and Anjou pear that continue deep into the finish.
