Lemon skin and grapefruit pith show strongly on the nose of this bottling along with tons of nearly ripe white flowers. There is a lot of citrus character on the sip, which is almost too sharp with sourness but quite compelling and interesting. The super racy character will mellow a tad with time and make this more accessible.
