Medium to deep lemon yellow. A bit of oak on the nose with lemon curd, light butter, brioche and light floral notes. Medium acidity (6/10) and light plus to medium bodied. Gets a little bigger in the backend. Has some solid minerality on the palate followed up by lemon zest, green apples, provenance herbs and a little bit of a creamy mouthfeel. Long finish with balanced acidity throughout.
