My first taste of the new vintage on the shelf here. I believe this export label is to be discontinued shortly.
Pale yellow in color, no green. On the nose a hint of smoke, floral aromatics, gentle oak tones do not overpower. Some butterscotch as it warms, really like this one. Peach to forefront, nose not so expressive on day 2.
Initial entry thoughts were peach, melon, soft, crisp acidity. Not an overblown style at all, as it opens the finish shows some vanilla and light citrus. Pineapple and grapefruit on day 2, very nice balance here. Will buy some more and check in a few months. Drinks nicely now though!
SC, $26 and 13% alc.
