    February 12, 2020 - moderate gold. pineapple, guava, and granite nose. rich, almost buttery. moderately acidic and medium bodied. interesting balance of salty, sweet, and hot. flavors certainly tropical, cooked pineapple, overripe peach, sour apple, a bit of pepper, and more stone. finishes long. drink now.

    September 7, 2019 - Great drinking white wine. Beautiful nose of subtle citrus, peach and stone aromas.
    The acidity was refreshing and I'd disagree with the characterization that the fruit is almost gone. Still a nice bit of fruity flavor left.

    Overall great wine for sipping on its own, no need for food. Will go great with food as well.

    Still have three bottles left- I'll gladly drink them over the next few years.

    October 4, 2018 - Fruit is almost gone, there's a subtle sweetness now battling a salty minerality. Some may find the alcohol too dominant, I think it's still ok.
