"Light gold. Pungent pear, fig and honey aromas, buoyed by notes of lemon pith and white flowers. Chewy and tightly focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering bitter pear skin, anise and citrus fruit flavors that show a refreshingly dry edge. Fleshier on the finish, which strongly repeats the lemon and licorice notes. This wine's combination of power and dryness will make it extremely flexible at the table."
