    June 5, 2011 - Delicious. Limon nose, but the palate is much more pineapple and honey dew, with just a touch of lemon and honeysuckle. Long, crisp finish. Would recommend.

Refreshing palate of more ripe tropical fruit with lightly scented jasmine and honeysuckle. Long, refreshing, yet succulent finish of more ripe fruit and flowers.

    June 7, 2008 - Very pale lemon in appearance. Slight hints of rhubarb, asparagus with strong nose of grapefruit and nettles. Slightly sweet entry on palate. Lots of zingy lime fruit with more grassy notes. Very refreshing. Nice minerality on the finish which is impressively long. Excellent
