Medium straw. Lifted notes of white peach and yellow melon are balanced by hints of vanillin char from fermentation in French oak barrels.

Palate:

A multi faceted wine, with varietal melon fruit and fresh citrus characters upfront. Subtle barrel fermentation provides a fine creamy texture to the mid palate while the crisp acidity creates an immaculate finish with persistent citrus and toasty oak characters.
