Honey, lemon, popcorn, and melon. Light natty funk. Tart and crushable. — a day ago
Nose has light yeasted bread, plum skin, vanilla bean, bruised yellow apple, (minor) cider vinegar, do much going on here, wow.
Palate has ripe plum flesh, candle wax, ripe pear, candied lemon, light oaky/vanilla notes on the long finish.
Very weighty wine, a white that could be paired with a roasted pork dish!

Lovely white wine from #armenia #oakfermented medium yellow color, intense aromas of perfumed jazmin and vainilla candle with candle wax and beeswax. On the palate it’s waxy and almost off dry, the fruit is rich and ripe. Acidity is medium and alcohol is medium 13.5%. The finish is long. Reminds me of a Viognier. — 21 days ago
It starts sweet like almonds, marzipan or even lemon or passionfruit meringue, but then the freshness makes it close extremely dry like a dry sherry. Hunter semillon in that magic spot, even though there isn't too much complexity i must admit there is somehow a kind of balance.
Mind this is the third bottle of it I open and this has been the best one and still this wine might be past its peak in a week, it's hanging tight on to its decadent beauty. — 17 days ago
