Amazing. Decant this. Watching this wine change in the glass was unreal. The next bottle I have I will open several hours before I drink it because by the time this wine was truly shining I had already finished the bottle 😫

Halfway between an Austrian white with its latexy noble weight and a wooly dessert Chenin. Exciting to try and discover on weird white explorer dinner.

100 year old own-rooted vines on sand dunes overlooking the Atlantic. Lots and lots of texture from 6 hours skin contact and short time in old Brazilian oak foudre, I also get sea air and pear skins. Perfect with aged cheeses and bring olives.

Honeysuckle, lilies, citrus, salty- delicious and complex. No doubt will be even more delicious and complex with age. 👏 @franklywines

Sea salt, shoe polish, burnt citrus...bizarre but I like it. It's coming around, could have been decanted yesterday.

Tasting this at the winery. Trying to ask questions but my Portuguese is non existent. Salty and mineral with a note of tart pinnapple. Good body.
