"Light bright yellow color; Musky citrus, pineapple and sweet floral aromas combine with a fresh grassy element. Initial grapefruit and citrus peel flavors give way to richer tropical fruits on the palate which is lush, creamy and broad but underpinned by vibrant racy acidity. With time in the glass the wine opens further to reveal honeyed leesy richness, broad texture and a hint of lemongrass on the zesty finish.
Serve at no cooler than 50 degrees to allow the wine to open fully. Drink within two years of release."
