Just a whiff of this deep gold Vidal Blanc reveals layers of smoke melded with honey and fresh apples. The palate is deeply complex with flavors that include pretty florals, rich pineapple, citrus and a compelling smoked nut skin note. The super-long finish is marked by zippy acidity and a lovely astringency.
