“Pale yellow. Vibrant lemon zest, anise and ginger scents, with a hint of quinine in the background. Dry and energetic on the palate, offering, herb-accented bitter citrus pith and pear skin flavors that put on weight with aeration. The taut, mineral-driven finish repeats the lemon element and hangs on with good, nervy tenacity.” - Josh Raynolds
