BRAND NEW RELEASE!!

"Bright straw. Pear and apple on the fresh, deep nose. Then juicy with clean flavors of apple jelly, white stone fruit and minerals; has good weight and texture. Finishes clean, fresh and with a delightful crystalline quality. Very impressive." (VM)

"Dried lemons with pineapple and light pear aromas follow through to a full body, a creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Gorgeous fruit. Drink now." (JS)

"Aromas of chamomile flower, Spanish broom and orchard fruit lift out of the glass. The ripe palate offers exotic fruit, juicy peach and a note of candied citrus zest." (WE)
