TASTING NOTE: Light bright orange-pink. Aromas of pungent red berries, cherry and blood orange; a minerally element adds vivacity. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering spice-tinged raspberry, tangerine and candied rose flavors that deepen and spread out with air. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and focused, displaying a subtle mineral quality and a hint of candied orange zest. Drinking window: 2017-2020.
