Tit For Tat

Extremely pale canary.  Big oily liliko’i and floral explodes in the nose with crisp golden delicious and base minerals.  Clean, pure, amazing red-flame fruit hits the tongue, never hesitating, true and sure of itself with knife-edge acidity in perfect balance and a subtle petrol.  Fruit turns the direction of exotic spice but never huge or construed.  Warm and mouth-filling in the middle, with stunning dryness pulling along throughout and especially in the finish.  Crisp is the word here.  Crisp and at the same time full and effortlessly round.  I drink more whites than I post about, and when I do, they are usually Riesling or Gewurztraminer.  This is one of those occasions.  This bottle is NAILS.  Easily in the top 5 of the variety in the New World.
