Clear, medium-deep intensity straw gold. Clean on the nose with medium intensity aromas of honey, dried florals, minerality, baked stone fruit, and cooked pear. A slight hint of oxidation. Dry on the palate with medium to medium-full body and medium-high acidity. Rich, bright, crisp flavors: fresh apple, candied lemon rind, lime, tangerine, and a light minerality on the medium-long finish. Rich enough to pair with something heady; bright acidity, but not lean. Highly recommended. RR
