($53) (made from a blend of treixadura, loureiro, albarino and torrontes): Pale gold. Sexy, mineral-tinged scents of orchard fruits, iodine, anise and white flowers. Smells like a Raveneau Chablis, and a good one at that. Sappy, smoky and incisive, offering vibrant pear and lemon rind flavors underscored by intense mineral and floral qualities. The iodine and smoke notes resonate on a finish that lingers with superb clarity and persistence.
