93The nose explodes with floral and stone fruit perfume. Gardenias first, followed by white peached. Rich layers of flavor roll across the palate, leading with sweet white peach and a touch of key lime, then white flowers and sweet lemon cream, finishing with lime and honey, all with an underlying streak of minerality. Acids are bright, sugars sweet but not syrupy, all well balanced. Young, bright, and refreshing, with enough complexity to match many meals. Drink with fried chicken livers, just for fun.  Highly Recommended (93). DH
