    September 21, 2013 - Golden yellow. Great citrus and apricot with some apple and butter. Nice acidity. My first South African chard. Another pleasant surprise from Costco.

    September 10, 2013 - lime, citrus, and stone. balanced acidity but presence of mineral is quite prominent. short of the complexity tt i was expecting. i will say this is just above average.
