Coconut oil, lime blossoms, fermenting citrus, kaffir lime and cold steel aromas show on the nose of this bottling of a grape rarely planted on the Central Coast. That coconut richness shows briefly on the sip, but it tightens up quickly to reveal restrained touches of lime skin and tangerine mousse.
