Nose: Pronounced kerosone/petrol and ripe lychee, melon, nectarine (maybe even wild honey?) aromas. I might be wrong but I thought there were hints of wood and yeast on the nose too.
Palate: The taste of sweet juicy green Anjou pears lingered in the somewhat medium (-) and spicy finish. Oak and vanilla flavors definitely pretty forward on the palate but not overwhelmingly so. Medium (+) acidity.
Comments: Sipped this without any food and went down surprisingly well (though my friend and I agreed later on that it was a tad heavy) after some delicious har cheong kai and beef hor fun dinner. I think I’m still biased towards the gewurtztraminer from alsace and germany 😛 But having said that, I’ll do this with a local popiah party anytime and chill it really really well!
