A rich white, offering smoke and spice accents, with a hint of butterscotch. The acidity sweeps in on the finish, leaving a fresh impression. Drink now through 2018.

Taut and mineral, this is a chewy wine, with a dense texture of green apple skins. It has an almost steely character while still showing richness.
