The Wine

Wonderfully expressive nose with freshly sliced granny smith apple, honeydew melon and fennel seed notes. Awesomely fresh with celery, cucumber and a squeeze of lime. The palate medium bodied with luscious layers and a cheek-filling textural edge.

Drinking... Enjoy upon release or cellar to 2025.
