International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88Pale bright yellow. Pure, subtle nose offers white peach, flowers and minerals, plus hints of menthol and brown spices. Quite dry and understated, even a bit ungiving, with a brisk grapefruit flavor joined by citrus peel on the slightly dusty finish. I wanted a bit more fruit intensity. (A second bottle was slightly more tart on the back end.)Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2012
