This golden sweetie smells succulent, with the nose showing honey, apples and chalk. The palate is pure dessert, with some razor-sharp acidity thrown in just to make us want to pair it with a steak or something crazy like that. It's all sweet all the time, yet does not even go near the “cloying” signpost. — 5 days ago
I must say I was a little surprised by our visit to Matthiasson. It’s amazing the amount of wines, varietals and bottling’s they make in a extremely tiny space. As well, the old school wine equipment that produce some very nice to high-end wines. It’s amazing they pull off what they do with facilities so far from the definition of a modern winemaking facility by today’s Napa standards. This says very good things about their staff.
Also, my notes will not be as detailed as I like...our host was speed tasting.
On the nose, lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers.
Full body and a little waxy. Lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers. Nice subtle volcanic minerals and soft chalkiness. Good acidity with a nice finish.
Have most of you picked up on grape shears woven into some of their label artwork?

Always a treat. Dead on perfect bottle, amazingly fresh for nearly two decades of age. Warm, beguiling aromas of spice, roasted nuts, dried fruit; palate absolutely rips with citrus and stone topnote with coconut, brown butter, baked apples and apricot. Complete wine and absolutely delicious — 7 days ago
