International Wine CellarBright, pale straw. Knockout nose combines lemon, lime, pear, melon, flowers, licorice and jalapeno, with a spicy ginger quality emerging with air.

There's an element of varietally typical herbaceousness but this wine is ripe, balanced and long.
User Tasting Note
Fellow Drync'rgooseberry on the nose, a little citrus, very inviting aroma, this is delicious! slight acidity on the tounge with a palate of herbs and gooseberry, winds down the finish with pizzaz, the finish makes the tounge beg for more, complex, fun, so damn good, quite close to flawless
