Very pretty floral and stone fruit aromas waft up from the glass, with apple blossoms and pears showing the most. Similar flavors show on the palate, with the addition of Meyer lemon adding a citrus tang. Partial malolactic fermentation softens the palate and adds apple notes to the mid-palate. Acids are well balanced. This is a very nice wine, particularly for the price. Drink with fresh trout. Highly recommended.

    Great work. Very informative. Recently me and my wife have been investing into wine, and have seen some outstanding returns. I would recomend reaserching the wine market. It is out performing almost every other asset class.
