Nose has sea salted ripe peach slice, watermelon rind, browned yellow apple slice, tangerine peel and crushed seashells.
Palate has tart nectarine, lime zest, under-ripe green apple, faint peach notes with light salinity on the long finish.
By far the most youthful presentation of our recent bottles (92/88/84), plenty of verve and tension left here, acids are still strong, energetic but fading bubbles. Notable evolution with more air time in the Gabriel-Glas.

One of those cases where I can't make a mere sip and fight for the right to finish the bottle. Yet it's sad, cause it's not available anymore in my local store. The first thing to notice is the pale colour of the wine. Apparently, caused by gentle extraction. A beautiful bouquet of fried sunflower seeds, raspberry, strawberry, dark chocolate, spices and gouache. Delicate on the palate, juicy and almost perfectly balanced with good acidity and velvety tannins. It is also flavourful and has a long-lasting aftertaste. To summarize, it is approachable and delicious Pinot Noir, stylistically closer to Bourgogne with a ripe twist. — 2 months ago
Popped and poured; enjoyed over three days. Consistent across the three days but seemed to be a little more open on Day 3. No formal notes. Loads of character in this wine. Star fruit, pear, lemon, gardenias, petrol and a massive amount of minerals: rocks and ferrous material. Absolutely sizzling with youthful energy. Long on the finish and wonderful acid. I want more. — 2 months ago

Last of three bottles for Leila’s friends Deb/Evan who have such EtOH tolerance and desire! 7/11/22 late after dinner drink. A classic Riesling nose of slate petro white fruits goodness with complex acidic balance and long finish. Too bad I only had a taste. May be only bottle. — 3 months ago
