Yoichi Aromatic Yeast, 48%

Price: $275 Issue: Spring 2023 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Candied citrus and dried fruit aromas are anchored by peat smoke and minerality, plus marzipan, vanilla, choux pastry, bubble gum, apple purée, pear, floral notes, and green foliage. The flavors are clean and elegant, with zesty citrus, vanilla, apricot, hard candies, apple juice, and peppery smoke, while a growing creaminess taps into reserves of baked peach and mango. The smoke and tropical fruits continue on the finish. (2,640 bottles)
