93 points Wine Advocate: Golden apples, savory spices and an undercurrent of saline and charcuterie. The palate is incredibly silky and layered, with addicting freshness and an array of spicy accents on the long, uplifted finish.
"Beautiful opening aromas of pear tart, Meyer lemon, spring flowers and hazelnut. Light bodied but textural, silky and expansive. Clean lines, lively, refreshing citrus, baguette crust, cream, and just a touch smoke. Adds notes of orchard fruits, yellow apple and pear. This seems like a perfect holiday wine to me. It’s delicious, low alcohol, textural enough for cooler weather (and sunny in its nature which is enjoyable when the weather is poor). It’s unquestionably fine wine and offers tremendous value." - Marcus Goodfellow
