Very terpenic and bitter. Sort of unusual but with air the grapefruit and leesy and lemongrass character accompanied some flinty character. Good wine

Citrus, tart apple, slight smokiness, dried apricot on the nose. Bright, juicy and clean on the palate. Very refreshing.

The color is pale yellow. The smell is bright, lemon, strong. Taste is medium acid, medium alcohol, medium mineral, coats the mouth, flavors of acid and mineral are balanced from beginning then increases in acidity, then 30 sec after a mild bitterness like a grapefruit peel and ends after a min. Wine presents with little tannins. This wine excites the side and middle of the tongue.
