This is truly dry, yet quite flavorful. There's great texture in the mouth, which the winemaker attributes to the quality of the fruit. The acidity is natural, refreshing and succulent; the citrus flavors conjure up lemon, lime and grapefruit, with a pleasing roundness in the center palate. Long and clean, this is simply outstanding.
