Lemon grass, green apple, Bosc pear and tangerine skin aromas dominate this mineral tinged zesty white. The palate is loaded with minerals and concentrated stone fruit flavors. Finesse and subtle power with lip smacking acidity and delicious ripe fruit flavors. Stylistically falling somewhere between light and zesty and luscious.
