It seems that this wine has seen better days, and probably had a bit more life and zest when it was first released. The aromatic nose offers notes of mashed banana, overripe nectarine, lychee nectar and crushed sweet pea petals, while the mouth delivers little flavor to the palate and lies rather flat. Might pair nicely with citrus-based desserts; drink immediately.
