Judges Tasting Notes

The use of oak is perfect here – just enough to elegantly support the fresh orchard and tropical fruit and quince. The palate is spicy and big, with a round and creamy mouthfeel and a rich layer of honey and melons. All in balance, with crisp and fresh acidity and a mineral touch on a long, lingering finish.
