In the glass, the wine has a pale yellow-green color. Vibrant aromas of peach blossoms, Anjou pears, fresh tarragon, and marzipan emerge when the wine is poured, adding ripe honeydew, white cherries and a suggestion of lemon balm over time in the glass.
On the palate, the wine has a beautifully textured mouthfeel, with a layered core of honeyed citrus and orchard fruit flavors that echo the nose, and a long, clean finish punctuated with zippy sea salt minerality.
