Aromas of peach marmalade, egg salad with celery, and lemon curd follow through on a round entry to fruity-yet-dry medium body with tangy nectarine, apple skin, and mint notes. Finishes with a crisp, tart lime skin and mineral accented fade. A refreshing palate cleansing wine to pair with grilled Vietnamese fish or Pad Thai. (tasted on May-18-2009)
