Wine Tasting Notes: Initial impression: much more palatable and lively than the Gehringer Bros. Ehrenfelser. Tastes of sweet chunky pineapple fruit, guava, apricot, lemon and mild honey (as advertised). Good sweetness level keeps you sipping while the acidity holds up nicely at the clean finish. A tinge too sweet on the initial sips but mellows out as the alcohol kicks in.
