Lots of acidity, wet wool, bees wax, and lemony cut apple. Not on par with a Coulee de Serrant but a lot cheaper too.

Beeswax, cheese rind, grapefruit pith and pear. Refreshing and zippy on the palate. This is a complex and intriguing wine.

Nice honey ginger and beeswax notes. Palate has a nice silky texture. Good acid throughout. Finish could be a touch more directed. Better out of the bottle, seems to oxidize quickly. Overall very impressed.

The nose is very plastic bandaid and fake perfumy smell. The palate isn't very good, sour and herbal rotting taste.

Crisp green apple without being tart. Yum.
