Bright fragrant nose of apple, citrus and tangerine with crunchy cassis leaf. Zesty and lively on the palate with a toasty richness underneath. Bold and vibrant on a long finish.

Snappy acidity imparts verve and drive to flavors of Honeycrisp apple, kiwi fruit, tangerine and slivered almond in this medium-bodied white. Subtle hints of minerally stone and salt chime on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
