Vintage 2019:

"This wine doesn't reveal much on the nose, aside from hints of green apple and honeysuckle. Those notes come alive on the palate, alongside other tart flavors like persimmon, pineapple and lemon drop. Bracing acidity keeps the fruit in check and the wine crisp. You'll want to keep sipping just to see what happens next. Layla Schlack"
