Tasting notes
Musk melon, lime and minerality dominate the nose. The palate is fresh and juicy with luscious pear and kiwifruit on the mid-palate. A well balanced, medium weight wine.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Nov 30 2004)
Distinctively citrusy and herbal, with lime, grapefruit and mineral character adding depth to the lively, focused flavors. Drink now. 80,000 cases made. –HS

Technical notes
After harvest the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks and fermented at controlled cool temperatures to capture the intense varietal flavors.
