From the warm dry 2016 vintage, Closson's PG from their Watson vineyard offers amped aromatics that feature peach, apricot, lime and mineral notes. Medium bodied, bright acidity and very good to excellent length. Nicely done. July 2017.

Clean medium-high intensity aromas of peach, apricot, citrus and yellow flowers. It's medium-bodied on the palate that gains volume and texture. The palate is dry with nice herbal flavours joining the aroma replays and some mineral hints. Acids are clean and the finish length is very good. Tasted Apr/2017.
