Brilliant pale straw color with a green tinge. Intense mineral/slate aromas. Fennel, green olive, sweet mint and quinine. Honey dew melon and lemongrass, some earth tones. Palate is fruitier than the aromas suggest. Lime juice and quince, deep clarity of flavor, hazelnut and lanolin. Piercing, livewire acidity draws out the finish. Great thrust and persistence.
Aged 12 months in French oak barrels. 6 months settling in tank.
