The tropical fruit flavors in this soft and focused wine give the perfect touch to summer. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas amp up the fresh flavors of Meyer lemon, pineapple and pear. The oak barrel aging comes through in the hints of nutmeg, toast and vanilla. A perfect combination of freshness and minerality, this wine would pair well with roast chicken or fish.

Rating: 14.5/20
