This is a seamless, Old World and classic white, integrated in salty oak with a beautiful opening nose of lemon rind. Lifted, persistent acidity gives it focus and freshness, as a taste of briny oyster shell, lemongrass and Asian spice mingle around well-integrated thoughtful oak. This is a beautiful wine.
