I’d only heard a little about these before someone had sent them to me. I hadn’t paid much attention before, but maybe I should’ve been. Strawberries, nectarines, and wine barrels? Oh, yes please. Strawberries sours don’t always turn out great (Hanssens, I’m looking at you), but I’ll give it a shot.
So it smells nice enough — plenty of citrus, and the strawberry is floating around there somewhere. And there’s a little sweet-tart to it, too. The taste is all nectarine upfront, along with some red berry in the middle, all wrapped in a light lacto sourness. A little drying, from the wine barrel I assume, but pretty nice on a hot day (we have a shitload of those here; yesterday was another 105+ heat index day). Damned good, and worth finding more.
For some reason #4 was sold out almost instantly, and I haven’t tried #1 or #2 yet, so hit me up if you have some. As it is I’m definitely ordering more of this one.
