Does the world need one more glorious review of residual sugar? Trick question it needs many. This wine gives medium-dry (for the WSET crowd), or semisweet wine a jolly good name. It has that petrol-y stank then airs out and peach Melba jams up. All with an undercurrent of gaseous mineral and—okay we need find new word for mouth-watering—acid. What am I supposed to say, mouth-filling-up-with-saliva acidity? Refreshing? It’s not exactly. Punctilious acidity? That doesn’t even really make sense but it sort of does. Your mouth will water promptly. The petrol notes are pretty hitting so give it some time unless like me you love that stink. Sweet tangerine juice is the ocean all this chaos floats on. It’s very good.
