Semi-sweet aromas of lemon, lime, and grapefruit. The palate is soft with notes of minerals, chalk, white stone, and limestone on the front of the palate. The finish is long with bits of dark fruit and more minerals. A bit briny.

Fresh, bright, and green. Peppermint spice with a bit of fresh pine. Enjoyable.
