89 pts Vinous
(all stainless steel) Pale gold. Aromas of fresh pear, Meyer lemon and candied ginger, joined by a subtle vanilla quality. Fleshy and focused in the mouth, offering nicely concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors that are brightened by a jolt of bitter lemon zest. Shows good depth and energy and finishes nervy and subtly spicy; a late mineral flourish adds lift. — Josh Raynolds
Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at cool temperatures to preserve much of the delicate fruit flavours. Once dry, the wine remained on gross yeast lees for 6 months to maintain freshness and improve texture.
