Delicate, light gold in color. Has an elegant yeasty smell with peach and lychee in the background. Creamy and supple with a lovely finish

Smells like apple. Tastes a little bitter (in a good way), like lemon pith. Some mild toasty oak. Tiny bit of almonds. Apple - almost tastes like a unbelievably dry, killer cider. No off tastes, good. Quality. But, a little anonymous. Would really shine in a cocktail. Wish it had a little more brightness and fruit. Waffling between 89 and 90. Will settle on 90, though it is not quite to my taste. EDIT: had another bottle a few months later and was pleased. Again, 89-90. This time, enjoyed the acidity. This may become my go-to.
