Notes of elderflower, green lime zest, and stone fruit. The palate is ripe, fine and succulent, offering zesty ripe citrus flavours coupled with an edge of minerality and sweet herbs. A small barrel ferment component gives balancing flesh to the wine’s crisp refreshing acidity.
Exactly what you think this is. Grapefruit grass cat pee citrus tennis ball. Medium to high acid. The same wine every year. I didn't mean to age this, just forgot about it. Drank over three days. Was best first day. Good wine.
