Green apple, floral notes, apricots, and terpentine on the nose. Crisp acidity and plenty of fruit on this off-dry wine. Outstanding value - this is easily worth $15 or more.
This hints at the off dry style without overstepping the boundary from dry. Expect scent combinations of spiced fruit and honeyed notes. The taste shows pronounced lemon/lime citrus zest and just an underlying sweetness with green apple and spice on the finish. Interesting to sip and I love the label: it gives you fly fishing tips and has little to do with the wine. Tasted Aug 2012.
