"Our 2011 old vine Tocai is a subtle and elegantly floral wine that should be enjoyed this summer and fall 2012, while it's at its most fresh and vibrant. Wild flowers, bright grapefruit and citrus zest aromas combine with fragrant green herbs, lemongrass and grassy freshness. The palate offers an intriguing interplay between sweet and savory elements. Crisp apple, fresh melon and sweeter citrus oil combine with delicate flint, fennel and other savory herbal flavors. Lovely fresh sea spray and iodine notes add complexity to the variety's telltale gentle floral, anise, quinine edge. An oily, waxy texture develops in the glass but the finish is sleek, focused and pure."
