90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2011
Bright straw-yellow with gold highlights. Expressive aromas of yellow apple and pear, complicated by light nuances of banana and minerals. This is mercifully much less the overripe tropical fruit bomb of some past vintages. In fact, this juicy and penetrating wine conveys a light, deft touch to its varietally accurate flavors of minty apple, banana and pineapple. Finishes persistent and pure, with fine-grained tannins. I welcome this rather strict but focused style, and suspect that it will gain depth and richness with a couple years of bottle age.
