silly good. Knife-edge balance of acid and richness, tending toward acid. Glad to have a supply of this

Lemon and mineral palate with light lemon oil on the nose. Crazy good acid, depth and length. Like a Lemonhead candy from heaven. Maybe just a bit too much oak on the nose for me though. Really good wine.

Structured, intense natural acidity. A serious cellar candidate.

This will end up something quite special when the oak integrates and wine has had time to evolve. Already very complex and on the riper side of dry chenin with currants and rhubarb on the front but needs a good 2-3hours of slow-ox or even a decant if you drink it now. Remarkable aftertaste that goes on for +1min.

Mineral but rich. Killer juice for the price. Shit, just killer juice.
