NOSE

Ripe and tropical, the aromatics simply pop, sashaying from lychee to pear, and peach to melon. As the wine warms in the glass, star jasmine is revealed and the wine leans toward decidedly more floral and perfume elements, without relinquishing that beautiful varietal character.

PALATE

On the one hand lush but also lively, pineapple, apricot, and honeycomb belie the razor-sharp acidity that cuts through mid-sip. The honeycomb in particular transitions to a sultry marzipan like nuttiness that adds richness to an already flashy palate.

FINISH

Here the ginger emerges along with lychee once again as the wine’s density is clearly evident. Citrus appears as well in the form of fresh lemon peel as the acid slowly begins to fade with one more hint of tropical passionfruit.
