13.9% alc. 160 cases produced.

Sounding like a broken record I can't recommend the whites from Carlisle enough!

This is a first for me. Here I found a mix of herbs and earth up front, which settled into young peach, minerals and hints of brown spice. It was unbelievably silky on the palate from start to finish with soothing peach, apple tones, and a zing of zesty acidity. The finish was clean with a mouthwatering bump of acidity and caking minerality.

Very crisp. Lots of waxy lemon peel and straw. Refreshing and unique expression of Gruner.

14.1% alc., 220 cases produced.

A great wine!
It didn't resemble Grüner Veltliner (as I know it) but came across more like a lighter version of a Rhone-varietal blend.
Nonetheless a super impressive wine that is HIGHLY recommended.
Kudos to Mike Officer!!

Citrus and fresh cut pineapple with a hint of white pepper. Nice acid, good texture.
