A very flavorful and balanced example of what Cortese can be when given proper care. This wine was absolutely delicious. Full and unctuous, with rich pineapple, lemon curd, melon and cream flavors offset by a snappy acidity on the finish. The yin and yang of the heavy fruit flavors and high acids almost reach Mosel-esque proportions. Lots of everything, but very balanced. French oak and 8 months sur lie is apparently very good for the Cortese.
