Crisp minerality and salinity shine in this wine. Green apple, melon, earthy tones and a slight creaminess from the lees on the palette. Great find.

Indistinctive but completely correct. Quite clear for such a young wine. If this was made “naturally”, I am impressed.

When it’s cold, it is fresh and pretty. As it warms, a rougher edge of volatility develops aromatically.

Quite sweet aromas and petrol/oily notes and white flowers on the nose. Peach, apple, pear, white pepper, spice and honeydew finish. Lovely round finish.
