"Silver-tinged straw. Fresh citrus fruits, melon, quinine and pungent flowers on the assertively perfumed nose. Seamless and incisive in the mouth, showing very good clarity and vivacity to the mineral-tinged honeydew and Meyer lemon flavors. Finishes dry, chewy and very long, with lingering stoniness and a touch of honeysuckle."
