Medium gold in the glass, this wine is loaded with tangy grapefruit, green apple, navel orange, and minerality notes, along with a slight herbaceousness on the nose. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with high acidity and quite intense with the grapefruit and herbal notes coming through more on the quite long finish. While there isn't a lot of complexity to this, it's extremely enjoyable, especially for the price and the fact it's something a little offbeat. Tasted May 2014.
