“Among the best values I’ve tasted this year in the broad category of fresh white wines, this is impressively delicious regardless of price considerations. Ripe in flavor and rounded in feel, it features stone fruit flavors with an undertone of mandarin orange, and finishes with mineral notes that lend interest and complexity to the finish. Like all other releases from this winery that I’ve tasted lately, there’s not the barest hint of sulfur showing in this wine — just pure fruit, deftly wrought.” 90 points Wine Review Online; Michael Franz – April 6, 2021
