A crowd-pleasing example, showing overall balance and integration, with lightly mouthwatering acidity and a creamy texture married to an appealing mix of white cherry, almond biscotti, lemon curd and anise flavors. A lovely streak of spicy minerality drives the long finish. Drink now through 2027.
Wine Tasting Notes
Golden in color, with crystalline bubbles. On the nose, fresh citrus notes of lime or tangerine leaves, with warm, smoked notes. A touch of almond then offers a voluptuous, vivid vibrancy. On the palate, notes of pomegranate and almond open with the expression of a plush texture of smoked tea or freshly harvested honey, and the juice of ripe black cherry and blueberries. The long, silky finish is perfect both as a prelude or the accompaniment to a gourmet meal.
