Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2008

($39) Pale medium yellow. Stony, floral nose hints at spices and tropical fruits. Quite perfumed and precise in the mouth, with a subtle saline character adding nuance to the bright flavors of lemon, pineapple and spices; showed a floral fragrance that reminded me of riesling, or muscat. The firm, harmonious acids really frame the wine and carry the fruit. Finishes bright, strong and long.
