Brilliant, straw-yellow. A heady, sharply detailed bouquet evokes fresh honeydew melon, Meyer lemon, pear nectar and toasted brioche, with iodine and smoky mineral qualities emerging as the wine opens up. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering densely packed yet nervy orchard and citrus fruit and buttered toast flavors and a subtle touch of poached pear. Shows noteworthy energy and mineral cut on the penetrating finish, which features a suave floral quality and a hint of oyster shell.
