Winemaker Notes: “The aromas are elevated with tropical notes of guava and passionfruit, macerated peach skin, and perfectly ripe pear. A hint of Meyer lemon and thyme fill in the background notes giving this bottling of Lillie an incredibly complex aroma profile. With time in the glass, the perfume draws down, adding weight and coming together harmoniously. The wine enters the mouth broadly, a reflection of vines grown on clay soils. On the palate, the mango richness of the wine is offset with the citrus tang of a kumquat which dries out and leaves the palate coated with dusty lemon zest and leaves you desirous of a second sip.” - Dan Petrosky
