Hazy gold. Yellow apples, cement, and pottery on the nose and palate. Medium plus tannins and bright firm acidity along with some frizzante bubbles. You want to appreciate Cornelissen? Here’s a great start if you can find it.

Have been hanging on to this one for a while, probably a mistake.

In a good place once again, 3rd and last bottle was great this time around, deeply colored, cloudy haze as expected, with peach, mineral ash, and white florals.

I tolerate his reds -- but it's his rose and white that I actually enjoy. I'm not so sure how to drink this, but there's no ignoring its unreal purity and complexity. Fresh kumquats, peach skin and papaya intermingling with the wafting scent of new sneakers and an over chlorinated pool.

Weird yet interesting stuff. Fading flowers, acacia honey, Weissbier, apricots on the odd but cool nose. Bone-dry with hay and tart lemon rind and cloudberry flavors; somewhat hot on the finish.
