Pale straw color, green/gold highlights, going to clear at the edge; starbright appearance with no visible sediment, light viscosity. Nose of grapefruit, green melon. On the palate: stone fruit, pear, grapefruit. Decent acid and lovely slate minerality, medium mouthfeel (which is more than I expected from the visual impression). A relatively simple but attractive package, screaming for food (went beautifully with a roast chicken with mustard/tarragon glaze, but I think it could work with a pretty wide range of flavors). Good purity, clean expression of the style, even if not terribly complex. Solid Tuesday night offering.
A medicinal note on the nose; pear and apricot on the palate, with a sharp grapefruit note on the finish giving it enough acidity to save it from flabbiness. This went well with cornmeal-fried oysters.
Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Light nose of peach, apricot, lime and wet stones. Flavors of peach, light notes of grapefruit, lime and minerals. Medium acidity, light to medium body. Drink or hold.
