Iodine. Nutty. Sherry-esque. Deep gold, nearing amber. Cool wine. Not for everyone.

Who said Portugal can’t make white wine that last as much as Burgundy. Impressive acidity that still holds after 20 years. Worth every drop

Absolutely fascinating. Sweet smoke and oxidative aromas dominate the nose - butterscotch and chestnuts. On the palate the acidity rushes through with ferocity. Lemon peel and brine find a more caramel like finish. Beautiful and bizarre - and as always a pleasure to enjoy a birth vintage wine :) #sommcon

Amazing find! Pleasantly oxidized but still has fresh golden fruits and bright acidity. How do they do that?

Lemon zest, Beeswax & Honey, amber & roasted cumin. Tons of acidity, tons of life left in this youngster.
