This wine, probably while still too cold, started out with interesting non-fruit nuances of picquant citrus and a touch of yeastiness. But with airing and after warming slightly, it opened up nicely to display rich fruit character suggestive of peach, sweet apple, citrus peel, and vanilla. Nicely balanced and easy to like. - HK 2015-04-21
