Wonderful. Deep melon - leaves and fruit. Apricot comes and goes with turns of citrus and tropical flavors. Acidity is there with zing to keep things moving. Delicious. Need to slow down to really take it all in.

Shy nose. As it warms up the spice and fruit balance well with acidity.

Several days later, major sulphur on the nose but finte palate.

Citrus, pineapple, apple skin nose with fruit cocktail on the palate. Sweetness is nicely balanced by acidity and a tad of a saltiness.
