Yellow-gold.  A bit ham-fisted at first but this finds its equilibrium quickly.  On the nose this is dry with some subtlety with a Asian patina: pitted orchard fruit, sandalwood, kombu, graphite.  More sake-like nuances with air and time in the glass.  On the palate a sleek, wintery fruit granita of bergemot, pomelo and apple skins, garnished with coriander.  Rind of the grapefruit acidity gives this counterpoint and piquancy.  Dashi-broth finish.   Savory, appetizing and individual.  For drinking soon.
