Reviews

  • "90 points. Pale yellow. Fresh melon, tangerine and white flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Silky and focused in the mouth, offering juicy honeydew and orchard fruit flavors and a refreshingly bitter orange zest nuance that builds with aeration. Shows good depth and tension and closes with strong, tangy lift and floral-tinged persistence." (vinous)
  • "87 points. Bright and lively, with pretty citrus and green apple flavors on a sleek frame, lingering gently. Drink now. 650 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
