Feb '11. Straw with yellow green hues. Butter and coconut cream on the nose. Pear and dried pineapple also come out on aroma. A great mouth feel with some creamed corn, lemon and coconut. It had acidity, but I found it underneath the chin and puckering on the cheeks, which is a sign of acidification. This would be a nice addition to a cellar. Great with any fatty fish, rich cheeses, sauteed poultry.
