The 2016 Amatra Jono’s Wave White has bright, fresh, sweet melon and white peach top notes with fleshy ripe nectarines on the core and crisp green apple acidity that fans out the tail on the finish. The wine is approachable in its youth with fresh, bright fruit aromatics and may age well for five to eight years under optimal cellar conditions.
Primary white peach and fresh apple fruit aromatics may evolve into nutty, spicy baked apple and cardamom notes. A wine with a rich, mid palate, depth and complexity that pairs well with seared salmon, scallops, mussels with saffron; fragrantly spiced white meat and sushi.
