Tasting Notes

A little austere when we tasted, this is going to need some time. Restrained, elegant citrus on the nose, with hints of the yellow fleshy fruit to come. It has a wonderful pure, silvery quality with linear mineral persistence. The acidity is perfect and flows through right to the end of the long finish. This is going to be wonderful. Drink 2015-2025.
