Sliced apples and pears with lemon curd, honeysuckle and stones. Medium- to full-bodied with crisp, lively acidity and impressive tension. Bright and juicy fruit character and flavorful finish. Sustainable. Drink now.

Round and juicy, with glazed yellow apple and pear fruit enlivened by tangy acidity. Features flashes of oak spices, vanilla and lime blossoms that will appeal to fans of a richer Chardonnay style. Reveals a tang of salinity that chimes on the finish, alongside a subtle chopped hazelnut note. Drink now.
