    November 28, 2021 - This is fun and enjoyable. Agree with what others have said about this wine. Certainly the fizz is very noticeable, and I would even say in the way. Maybe drink this when you want to have something good but different, rather than a more predictable experience.

    October 5, 2021 - This was a very pleasurable not unexpectedly enjoyable wine drinking experience. There is certainly a greater than slight amount of effervescence, but I found it all enchanting in the glass. For me, this bottle drank like a very nice hard apple cider (Drew's for example), but with some additional complexity on the nose and finish. It was incredibly refreshing and a perfect pairing for foodstuffs. Held up over three days, so not something to fall apart in the short-medium term. I am left wanting more. I'm not sure what the "correct" score might be for something like this, but it's incredible for the ratio for Enjoyment over price.

    August 27, 2021 - This was a little fizzier than I expected (not that there's anything wrong with that), but it certainly made for a refreshing warm weather drinker.

    Citrus, medium acidity... all good.

    August 13, 2021 - A touch of fizz, those less noticeable on the palate. This has a bit of ripeness with candied pineapple, honeysuckle, ripe melon, and fresh peach. Has a bit of thickness to it due to the minerality, and there isn’t a ton of acid, so it definitely drinks a bit better when warm. I liked it but didn’t love it (my general feeling with rhone whites).
