I'm not quite as fond of this vintage as I am of the 2011, which I loved. The 2012 has a touch of sweetness and heaviness and seems to lack the crispness and precision (at this point) of the 2011. Still, it's a really tasty and interesting wine at a great price point. Fruit-forward with apricot, melon, pear, citrus peel, and honey in its attractive aromas and flavors. A really appealing white. - HK 2013-10-18
