On opening, aromas of golden delicious apple, apple skin, nectarine, Myer lemon peel and waxy white flower.  On the palate, the fruit turns spicier with pear, apple, and honeydew melon at the center and a hint of nuttiness.   The finish pops with bright, vibrant, acidity that lifts the green pear, Acacia flower, and lime pith flavors across a long, dry, finish.  Leaves your mouth watering and green melon and spice flavors lingering.  Drinks like a cross between Pinot Blanc – crisp, bright, green apple-laced – and bone dry Riesling – aromatic, a touch floral, and full of juicy acids.

Give it a few more months – or even a short decant now – and the wine opens beautifully.  The fruit get richer, and riper, picking up a more golden hue and a hint of hazelnut without losing the floral and Myer lemon accents.  The texture gets fleshier and finish more broad and rich, too, but the bright green apple acids and touch of lime zest bitterness keep things fresh and very drinkable. At all times, it’s a delicious match for everything from ham to salmon to seafood to salads or more.  Or just for  sipping on a pretty Spring afternoon.
