Brilliant in color, its hue is reminiscent of clean, fresh-cut straw. A beautifully expressive bouquet fills the glass with mandarin, citrus, and pear aromas, layered above undertones of freshly baked bread. Precise, but very giving, the palate is broad showing generous flavors of gingerbread and baking spices. The acidity and weight gracefully integrate, undulating elegance, leading to a long, persistent finish.
