This is a wonderful young white with layers of fruit, such as fresh peaches and lemons and then some cream and stone. Full-bodied and layered. Only 4,000 bottles made.

The Valandraud 2018 Blanc comes sashaying out of the glass with beautiful orange blossoms, beeswax, crushed rocks and lime leaves scents over a core of green guava, pink grapefruit and yuzu. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with citrus and tropical layers, with a satiny texture and fantastic tension, finishing long and mineral laced.
