This wine was highly praised here and by GLPease in person, so I got one. It is indeed lovely and delicious. The wine is smooth, soft, delicate, but full of flavor: cantaloupe, pink grapefruit, a little yellow apple, and red berries. The textured minerality is almost creamy.
I wasn’t able to try it the next day. On the third day, the magical delicate flavor and texture was gone, it was still pretty tasty.
