Pale lemon
Nose: dried citrus, gravel, stone fruit
Palate: citrus, ginger, unripe stone fruit
Medium acidity, high alcohol
Not complex or intense, but pleasant.

Paired with a hard sheep's milk cheese.

Orange blossoms, honeydew, lemon rind, with medium + acid and a creamy leesy mouthfeel. Year in and out, this is such a workhorse - one of the best values out there. Had with a simple garlic butter shrimp pasta.

Lots of character and zest to this, a strong match to stand up to and compliment an excellent curry

Vin intéressant et complexe, odorant, frais en bouche et plein de saveurs mais difficile pour moi de les identifier. Certainement pamplemousse comme souvent mentionné, j'y vois aussi du noyau de pêche amer., du bois, pas très acide, c'est alcooleux mais à la fois rond. Une longueur mais pas tant. 2019.

Winter Worthy Wines Class
Ripe banana and melon aroma with a hint of smoke. Full body with light toasty notes.

2019 in 9/20. Had a prev vtg of this yrs ago and didn't love. Gets a lot of hype for its VALUE which I sort of get but this was $19 and I think I personally would lean towards the Raats Original for $14 for value and Tues night drinking.

This was more ripe, rich, concentrated than Raats. Not as bright and acidic. As I write this I think I should try it again wo the pretense of comparing it to other CB. I love Adi's wines in general so I wanted to love this. It was good. TWM.
