Light yellow-gold. Fresh pear, melon and nectarine scents are complicated by candied orange and ginger, with chalk and spice nuances adding lift. Bright, energetic and pure, with palate-staining orchard fruit flavors given spine by chalky minerality. The mineral-tinged finish features a suave, gently sweet note of honeysuckle.

A firm and refined blanc de blancs, with a streak of minerality running through finely layered flavors of Gala apple, lemon zest, biscuit and fresh finger. A tangy saline note echoes on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2020.

A surprisingly soft wine, showing as much richness as minerality. The wine has weight, some yeasty character with peach and citrus. It finishes with a round, full and creamy character.
