Citrus of maybe grapefruit and maybe a hint of peach. Good nose, but something about the finish reminded me of a type of childhood medicine.

Assertive citrus aromas and flavors. On the palate the citrus mingles beautifully with tropical fruit notes. Crisp, clean and expressive. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 90 points by International Wine Cellar: ...Fresh melon and tangerine aromas are brightened by lemon zest and honeysuckle.

A suave, very attractive rendition of sauvignon blanc that finishes sappy and clinging, with refreshing bitterness and very good length.
