On the nose, very light hints of petrol, honey, crush minerals, citrus and white & yellow florals. Citrus blend of; lemons, lime, tangerine, citrus peel, citrus blossoms, some green apple, honey, powdery volcanic minerality that sticks on the palate, beautiful acidity and a really nice, long, round, rich finish. A wine you and just sip and sip and sip.

I just can't believe I'm here. It's such an honor. I'd like to thank my friends and family for their support along the way, @Stevie Stacionis and Josiah, and most importantly bacon. Thank you, bacon.

Wild funky icy nose. Great texture. Lots of acidity. Age worthy. Bananas and honey. Long complex finish. $38
