91Fresh and clean, with a bouquet of citrus flowers and a lovely palate to pair with seafood. This is very pretty and light on the nose, with aromas of pears, citrus flowers and fresh-cut grass. The attack is pineapple and cut grass, adding tangerines and gentle Meyer lemon on the mid-palate. Lemon pith lingers on the finish. This is clean and bright, lightly acidic, well made and balanced. Mouth-feel is very soft and silky. Drink with macadamia encrusted mahi. Highly Recommended. 91.
