93 POINTS - "With an attractive pale golden hue, this wine opens with alluring aromas of ripe tree fruits, fresh cut pineapple, shaved coconut and lemon custard intermixed with hints of honeysuckle, chamomile, mineral, and sandalwood. On the palate, the lively notes of Meyer lemon, white peach, ripe quince, crisp green apple and tangy Kaffir lime are layered with nuances of candied ginger, nutmeg, and toasted almonds. To enhance the experience, the delicious flavors are supported with the brilliant combination of creamy texture, zippy acidity, and a lingering finish that makes every sip count." - Chris Sawyer
