Pale Gold in color, clear and bright. This took maybe 3o to 45 minutes to open up. On the nose there is a nice lemon candy note with some minerality. On the palate, the lemon candy comes thru along with fresh lemons and underlying minerality. Slight char. There is a nice depth and complexity here. Still on the youthful side with plenty of vibrancy. Long finish. This should drink well for another twelve to fifteen years. This is great on its own and will work with a wide variety of lighter foods including fried chicken.
