Nose

The 2011 Querencia has generous aromas of watermelon, lemon and mandarin orange. It’s fruitful nose is accentuated by developed aromas of apricot crumb cake and brioche.

Palate

The palate sustains lasting flavors of ruby red grapefruit, lemon custard and strawberry, which linger with a long, crisp and mouthwatering finish.

Growing Conditions
