Community Tasting Notes 5

    December 12, 2015 - The wine has medium acidity. It smells like almond, gooseberry, mango, mineral and petrol. The wine finishes long. It tastes like honey and mineral. The wine looks straw colored. The wine has polished texture.

    April 27, 2014 - Much sweeter on the nose than in the mouth, mildly effervescent, stoney, just the slightest bit of fruit, really marvelous, in part, because it's so unlike more run of the mill rieslings.

    March 2, 2013 - Wonderful as advertised. Particularly enjoyed the tart fruit flavors. Went well with scallop and avocado tacos.
