A glimmer of toast and honey add depth to the green fig, apple and underripe peach center of this wine. Fresh and zippy on the palate, the vibrant fruit and sweet citrus flavors carry through to the mouthwatering finish. Drink up.
Rich fruit aromas of yellow apple flesh, mealy pear and banana lead the bouquet, with a hint of grapefruit pith in the background. The palate is tangier and more lifted than the nose suggests, with bright flavors of green plum and citrus juice.
Earthy aromas are accompanied by driftwood and endive. These repeat on the palate, accompanied by cinnamon, dried meat and dried herbs. The finish has eucalyptus up front and a sweet, fruity bloom at the back end. Lovely wine, but without appropriate heft. —K.F.
