Medium lemon color. On the nose I get pineapple, pink grapefruit, Meyer lemon zest, nutmeg and honey. The palate is off-dry with high acidity, medium body and fresh fruit flavors of pineapple, lemon and grapefruit with some zingy minerality, finishing with some honeysuckle. The finish is medium (+) long with a fresh cut from juicy acidity. The fruit flavors linger nicely. It’s is a delicious wine that has some residual sugar but is not cloying. A 12% ABV is indicative of its sweetness level. This refreshing wine will go well poolside or served up with a chilled salad topped with steamed prawns or grilled octopus. Drink till 2028. 92 points for this $20 beauty makes it a 5 star summer wine to drink till 2027. Salut….
