Pale yellow with a chartreuse tint, the wine opens with bright aromatics of lime zest, lemon, green apple and a touch of honey. The entry is refreshing with ripe pineapple and grapefruit, framed by a nervy backbone of satiating acidity. A mid-palate of white peach and a hint of pith melds seamlessly into a long, energetic finish of wet stone and key lime.
Citrus and stone fruit flavors are set up against a spicy frame, with dried ginger, melon and orange zest notes lingering on the finish. Drink now. 4,300 cases made.
