Sunday, February 10, 2013 - Pale yellow in the glass with a hint of green, the nose is delicious sugared grapefruit, with nice florals, lemon grass, and a touch of pineapple. The palate echos those flavors with more emphasis on the lemon, but the herbal note is still prominent. It starts almost relaxed and rounded and a shade sweet, but the mid-palate shows a good acidic structure that easily balances. The finish is long and emphasizes the herbal quality, showing a pleasant bit of lemon pith bitterness. There is no trace of petrol or oil, here, and even the minerality is just sort of hinted at. But the fruit is pure and the wine is delicious from start to finish. I took pretty much a blind flier on this, and I'm very glad I did. This is very enjoyable and a clear win for $18.
