Complex aromas of lemon zest, ripe ruby grapefruit, jalapeno jam, orange sherbert, floral muscat, vanilla, and lemon cream pie. On the palate, a creamy texture leads the way to layered flavors of mango, green melon, nectarine, key lime pie, honeysuckle and vanilla wafer. Zesty citrus flavors, tropical fruit and ultra bright acidity linger in the crisp and clean finish
