The dark golden color is clear evidence of the age of this wine. Minerality and acidity run in streaks through golden honey, white honeysuckle, and marzipan flavors. A tangy-sweet key lime peel citrus carries the acid and keeps it from being cloying. Drink with foie gras or, if you must, a more politically correct paté.
