"Opening with enticing aromas of Mediterranean herb, yellow spring flower, eucalyptus and citrus, this is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. It's also delicious, delivering juicy yellow peach, fennel, white almond and the barest hint of grapefruit alongside tangy acidity. A mineral note suggesting saline adds depth. An absolutely phenomenal showing." -KO, 9/1/21
