Pale lemon/lime colored with medium viscosity legs (13.5% ABV). Medium intensity aromas of white pepper, lanolin, lime, pear, red apple and wet stone. The palate is dry with high acidity and a medium body. Flavors of silky lanolin with spicy white pepper and Bartlett pear mix with slightly underripe red apple and zingy citrus. The finish is medium in length and a touch tart from the high acidity. It’s refreshing, yet the full body is counterintuitive. This comes in a 1 litre bottle for $16 and gets 88 points from me. I’m pairing this 4 star wine with Thai Beef Kaprow and a vegetarian Green Curry. Drink now. Salut….
