“A pungent array of resin, straw, apple and citrus introduces vibrant, intense and attractively textured and detailed flavors that terminate in a dry, clean and citrusy finale that offers better than average depth and length compared to what is typical for the genre. This would make a fine choice for an ageworthy house white.” -Allen Meadows, Burghound
