Shiny yellow straw color, green flecks, bright and lively surface. Painfully crisp oak in the nose, lime juice, pain grille, fried butter, moderate level of peach to pear scents, tends to zip right out of your nostrils. Medium-bodied, sour and acidic yet with a dry cotton candy sweetness, Again, the oak toast blasts through the mouth, featuring lime, dill, to buttered toast. The restrained apricot, red apple, pear fruit shows better as the wine gets warmer. In the end, given its scale and youth it is integrated and does not strive for undue flamboyance.
