Winemaker Tasting Notes: “An elegant nose of guava, grapefruit zest and a hint of gardenia soars from the glass. Precise, vibrant acidity and a Meursault-like texture surround the core of nectarine, followed by a layered finish of Mirabelle plum, key lime and yamamomo peach.” – Marbue Marke (200 cases)
