Crisp and juicy, with a pretty floral note winding through flavors of Fuji apple, apricot, anise and candied orange peel. Fresh and focused, with a slight grain to the texture and a smoky subnote that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 4,000 cases imported.

Assertive aromas of orange peel, lemon, chalk and minerals, complicated by yeasty and smoky nuances. Fresh, juicy and precise, with firm acidity and lovely intensity. Not especially complex, but spicy, tangy and persistent.
The nose is a wild and wooly mix of popcorn, hay and cured meat. Apple and some fast-fading citrus make up the flavor profile, while it finishes dull. Fairly forceful with a relentless attack in terms of bubbles and acidity.
