Color: yellow with intense coppery highlights
Nose: broad and complex, with flowery notes of wild roses, acacia blossom, tropical fruit and apricot;
Palate: fruity, elegant and full-bodied, with a good follow-though on the back palate and attractively balanced acidity.
Soft, lingering finish, with notes of tropical fruit.
James Suckling 90 points - A more delicate style of pinot grigio from a lighter year with sliced pear, green apple and mineral aromas and flavors. Medium to light body, fresh acidity. Very minerally. Drink now. Screw cap.
Wine Spectator 88 points - A creamy white, with crushed almond and white peach notes, layered with a subtle, minerally underpinning. Fresh finish. Drink now through 2019. 16,000 cases imported.
