On the nose I get loads of yellow grapefruit, green been, celery, green apple skin, and heaps of gooseberry. To say this wine smells like New Zealand SB is a gross understatement! There is loads of gooseberry and a pronounced herbaceousness here and this wine is certainly not bashful about it.
On the palate there is citrus and grapefruit in abundance as well as gooseberry, green been , white pepper, and mineral. The texture is surprisingly round though, and the acid is there but not as piercing as one would expect. I suppose when all is said and done, this wine is perhaps just a bit too vegetal for my complete satisfaction.
