Color of bubbly egg white. Nose of honey and citrus, a bit lime, peach, a bit roasted nuts, and a bit salty mineral. Nose is refreshing and nice. Taste of peach sweetness, citrus and grapefruit, drizzled with some mineral and zest note. Aftertaste is clean and more grapefruit, and a bit warmth from alcohol. Nice.

Lovely pale blonde color and floral honeysuckle nose. Very fruit forward with a mango-pear finish. Smooth with just the right amount of pucker. If I was a sauv blanc lover I think this would be a favorite. I’m trying to expand my palette with whites.
