As deceptive as a succubus in a sun dress, this glorious white reveals itself to be curvacious, playful and teasingly "more-ish". Wonderful perfumes of bartlett pear skin and sweet/tart citrus relish are very complimentary to the highly balanced and mouth-filling lemon meringue and leafy palate.

A gorgeous white best showcased with the finest of friends and late summer evenings with grilled fruit de mer.
