(2012 Vintage) Our taste profile includes the obligatory “gooseberry” nose, but we seek more of a citrus and grapefruit finish, giving it more of a softer texture, linked with good acidity, this makes for a great aperitif full of zingyness.
Kinda closed nose. Different flavor, something different, but ultimately a very vegetal, almost sour NZ sauv blanc. Zingy mouthfeel, sourfruit, vanilla, good stuff, citrus flavor, I found it not good at first, but now I'm lovin' it. Not the longest finish, dry finish. Acidic, flavor is nice. Needs time out of the bottle.
