Appearance - Crystal clear.
Aroma - As the label says, "initial grassiness is followed by aromas of capsicum and green walnuts" add that the walnuts are pickled as there is also a whiff of vinegar and, as with the 2010 vintage, this also has pollen heavy blossom aromas.
Taste - Opens with a slight sweetness before turning dry with hairspray and earthiness. Slightly creamy with tropical fruit esters.
Aftertaste - Tart, slightly citric finish with lingering liquorice and tropical fruit.
Rating - 5/5
