This cool climate region is well-suited to this grape, producing aromatic, elegant wines such as this without the over-the-top perfume that can drive consumers away. Subtle aromas suggest light talc, acacia and calla lily, while in the mouth this is soft and smooth. Overall it's just plain pretty, with details of apple and apple skin.
