Clean, medium+ intensity aromatics offer elegant pear, mineral and apple aromas with a lightly oaked touch. The palate is medium+ bodied with rounded, balanced aroma replays and nice acidity. It's nicely textured, balanced throughout and the finish length is excellent. Reliably tasty, year after year. Tasted Mar/2017.
