Like all Matetic SBs, this wine from a warm year is pungent and prickly on the nose, with jalapeño, nettle and gooseberry aromas. The palate feels lively and bouncy, with citrusy lemon and passion fruit flavors along with green notes of nettle and cactus pad. This is mildly acidic and grassy tasting on the finish.
