Had on New years day with friends.
Nose was forward with yellow apple red pear
Palate was good with a mix of red hinted fruits, apples, some minerality
finish was above average the cut was not a strong as I tend to like so even with the good fruit the wine seemed a little flat. Still a nice entry level bottle of wine.

Took to a friends house.
Really enjoyed the wine, but it probably didn't have the proper amount of time to open up completely.
Still the great apple cider honey salt mineral mix showing, always a pleasure.
