The body is thick, rich, waxy and a touch syrupy. Dry, pineapple & apricots, golden apple, peach, lemon syrup, lime candy, some green apple, grapefruit with pith, marmalade, orange rind, fruit blossoms, honey, beeswax, soft delicate minerality, very light petrol notes, slate, white spice with yellow lilies and spring flowers. Acidity is round and magnificent. The 09 is in a good place with plenty of life ahead. The rich, lush, well balanced finish is persistent for minutes.
Excellent with spicy Asian food.

Bright and easy to drink with zippy acidity and aromas of tart apples, petrol and fall spices. A lovely pairing with a summertime salad. — 5 months ago
Such an interesting wine. A lot of cave-like funk, with just a hint of sweet residual sugar. Low alcohol...drank the whole bottle! — 8 months ago
Lime, grapefruit, saline, white rock, and a mild petrol finish - like drinking wine through a garden hose, in a good way. — 2 months ago
