This has a lovely tension between the acid and the hint of juicy sweetness. It's loaded with lovely fruit flavors—tangerine, nectarine, Satsuma orange and more. There is no trace of the soapy aromas that often come with this grape. This would be a delightful match with a curry or coconut-based preparation.
