Soft gold in color with bright aromatics of orange zest, honeydew melon, dried stone fruits and lemon verbena. Oily and concentrated on the palate, impressions of grilled lime, agave nectar, hazelnut and kiwi peel intermingle with notes of oyster liquor, sea salt, and dried nori. The mouthfeel is firm and polished finishing with focus and precision.

International Wine CellarPale gold. Powerful scents of tangerine, pear skin and iodine, with a racy streak of smoky minerals adding vivacity. Pure, focused and linear on the palate, offering fresh lemon, orange and orchard fruit flavors and a musky floral quality. Very deep but refreshingly brisk, with a penetrating note of dusty minerals on the long, focused finish.
