Clear, bright, pale golden color. Clean on the nose with medium intensity aromas: caramel, vanilla, orange, yeast, white floral, fleshy sun-warmed peaches, and dried ginger. Dry on the palate with medium-high acidity, medium to medium-full body. Flavors of candied lemon peel, orange, tart peaches, green apple. A creamy, round texture and a long lingering finish. Pair with mustard crusted pork tenderloin and roasted root vegetables. Highly Recommended. 94. RR
