Rich with baking aromas, floral and and fruit flavors, all strung together on a wire of clean defining acidity. It’s like a very thin puff pastry heaped with pears and starfruit, spiced with nutmeg, and dried key lime and tangerine peel, all sprinkled lightly with the juice of a Meyer Lemon. Drink with roast chicken.
