Tasting Note

Cloudy and marigold in color but lively on the nose and palate.  Aromas of grapefruit zest, rich stonefruits with the fuzzy skin, kumquat, sea spray and hints of fresh ginger are truly captivating.  Rarely does a full-on skin-contact white emerge with this much freshness and acidity (not of the volatile type).  It is lively and refreshing while still carrying textural richness.
