….It manages the balance between sharp. tangy acids and fine smooth mouthfeel quite beautifully. It ™s lemony and nectarine like. and yet there ™s a smooth. creamy sense to the mid palate. Add excellent. tangy thrust through the finish and you have a wine destined to drink very well. once it hits maturity. 93 Points. ”
