“Lifted citrus and floral notes of ruby grapefruit, tangerine, and orange blossom followed by a hint of green tea and wet stones. Medium-bodied with delightful acidity. Wonderful wine. Drink now.”


“Starts with expressive grapey aromas and red cherries followed by kola nuts, candied citrus and a hint of salted caramel. Medium-bodied with balanced acidity and a delicate fine bead. Aromatic and vibrant. Drink now.”


“Aromas of candied citrus, white peach, and musk melon followed by pie crust and cotton-candy. Medium-bodied with bright acidity and a fine bead. Subtle flinty minerality at the end. Lively and aromatic wine. Drink now.”
