Riverina, New South Wales, Australia; 13.5% ABV
$5 at the Richmond, CA, store on 3 July
This has been around for a while now, but I’m trying it only after receiving a recommendation in the store. It’s a little on the acid side for my taste, but I agree it’s very good for the money.
I liked it warmed a bit from fridge temperature so the acid was less emphasized. Then, it shows fairly elegant, engagingly complex flavors of yellow melon, yellow apple, some lemon and green lime, and (as the back label suggests) less ripe yellow peach / nectarine, with supporting oak. I’d suggest pairing it with white fish.
