I actually quite enjoyed this wine — some similarities to the Rioja Alta Ardanza I had a few days ago. Low residual sugar, but also low tannin, pretty dry and with more secondary characteristics than I would expect for a wine this age. Still some mouth pucker, though. — 3 days ago
Nose is huge florals and tropical fruit.
Palate is tropical fruit. Some minerality.
As this opens imagine like the best early season apricots with lovely tartness. Delicious. Very distinctive. Less pineapple / guava. Pure apricot as it opens.
Some wild internal aromatics. Fermented honey???
Finish is unusual. Apricot skin ?
Really a wine you want to own. Not the most complex but very different. With lobster or fois gras would be amazing.

Lemon, peach, sea shell, river rock, perfumed white flower. Medium+ body with slightly oily feel on the palate. Plenty of zippy acidity to keep it fresh though. Lots of citrus and floral notes of lemon, lime, and orange with some pith and mineral bitterness.
Tasty stuff and excellent value. Hitting the spot on these warmer days. — 9 days ago
