This is a wine of intense subtlety. Deep golden color and tight, but medium acidity. The notes are complex and many, but they are not obvious. Starts with strong saline and brine. Then moves to mineral and stone, with underlying green apple, slight zest, and some minimal tropical notes. It packs a punch and requires a long time on the palate to fully open up and appreciate.

Jill says it tastes like lake water, but I disagree.

First tango with this varietal. As advertised, it’s a great seafood wine. Very fragrant and exotic nose. Round, tropical, saline
