This does not disappoint. Haven’t tasted a huge amount of Tom Lubbe’s wines, but have had the pleasure of meeting him. A wonderful man with great integrity. I hope one day to sit down and discover how he created this devastatingly delicious, can’t-stop-thinking-about-this, wine. The color, the nose, the palate. 10/10. — a day ago
Allow time to breathe before drinking. Opens with VA and Brett but does simmer down with some air and the rumblings of well-intentioned banter. Although there was some delicate and welcomed stone fruit on the nose and palate, it was slightly lacking in an acidity that was needed to round-out and deliver the flavors. Finishes flat, on the roof of the mouth. Too shy to be judged and exposed by other tastebuds, possibly. I do like this producer though, so I’ll certainly be returning for more. And, well, as natural wines go, like a bad piece of fruit, it could have just been this bottle. — a day ago
Really delicious. I did however taste a very, very slight amount of oak, but learnt this wine is fermented in stainless steel barrels. I soon read that they add “Indigenous Yeast” so I’m curious if this yeast is responsible for that slight, lingering wood on the tail end. Certainly wasn’t put off, though, and very much enjoyed. Well balanced acidity and concentration. Ripe, juicy, and absolutely worth cellaring, see how it ages. Would definitely drink again. — a day ago
