slightly sweet with a lot of lemon and lime zest; kind of gross
(FYI, drinking this at room temp) Nose is really vibrant and fruity. It smacks you with fruit but doesn't smell like a fruit bomb. Also a bit flowery but not too sweet. Smells similar to basic champagne. Taste is surprisingly crisp and non-fruity. I'm getting more flowers than fruit on the palate but it's definintely young at this point. Doesn't feel like its really opened up. Not shabby and seems like it'd be a great pairing with something really spicy. I'm going to try with chicken wings...
This is my favourite summer wine. Light and sweet, easy to drink, good with food or alone!
i am a picky wine drinker and i absolutely love this stuff.
I love this wine. It goes well with just about everything I serve except raspberry vinaigrette. It's a staple on my wine rack.

Ironstone's track record for this pretty dessert wine continues with the '07. It's off-dry, with residual sugar just under 2%, and polished flavors of pineapples, oranges, marzipan, honey and vanilla. High acidity adds the perfect touch of crispness.
This dessert wine has been remarkably consistent over the years at a good price. It's an off-dry sipper with crisp acidity, and finishes clean, with a taste of apricots and pineapples. The residual sugar is 2.2%.
Smells like a dessert wine, with the apricot, wildflower and honey aroma of a sweet Riesling, and drinks on the off-dry side, too. There are modest peach and apple flavors. Notable for the fresh, sharp burst of acidity.
Nase: der Blend zeigt eine unbeschreibliche Fülle an Fruchtaromen, welche sich durch die Restsüsse harmonisch verstärken
