The wine pours with a very light fizz. The nose offers sweet fruit, white peaches and pears. On the palate, the flavors are unripe peach and lime. Lime lingers on the finish. Acidity adds a knife-sharp zing. It’s summer in a glass, a moderate alcohol (10%) stone-fruit and citrus refresher perfect for poolside. Drink with grilled scallops. Recommended (88). DH
