Zesty! Drinking this wine felt like having a mouthful of Sweet Tarts (not necessarily a negative). Tropical, floral nose with hints of lemongrass. The palate saw a battle between sour fruit (lemon, grapefruit) and sweet fruit (guava, pear). While I enjoyed this dynamic to an extent (and loved the mouthwatering acidity), this was still just a bit too tangy for me. 50% Colombard, 30% Ugni Blanc, 15% Gros Manseng, 5% Sauvignon Blanc. 1/9/23.
