Wine Spectator ~ 92

"Seductive aromas of chamomile, lanolin and pear give way to tight but focused flavors of grapefruit, green almond and quinine in this vibrant white, which has a firm, lean character that persuades rather than imposes."

2009 VINTAGE

Vinalies Internationales 2011 Silver Medal - "a subtle honeyed nose leads on to a palate with lively citrus fruit, well integrated oak. A complex wine with good length."
International Wine Challenge 2011 Silver Medal
92 This has weight and length, with lemon cream and tarragon notes up front, followed by mouthfilling white peach, tangerine and shortbread notes, all framed by a lingering quinine note on the finish. Smoky hints weave in and out as well, for added range. Distinctive. Drink now through 2019. 1,600 cases made. –JM
Orange peel, tropical fruit with a fresh and elegant oak giving spicy lift. Fine integration, good concentration and vibrance.
