Clean oak on the nose. Body is all fruit and just enough minerality to keep the butter away. Very nicely balanced.

Gordons ฤŒhanin tasting 6/13/17. $43. #1. Nose of white flowers and tropical fruits with mineral notes. Palate that's textured and with tension mouth feel and weight. Long finish with acids and minerals. Saline type minerals. Full melo unfiltered. Sulfur minimal and only after melo. Richest wine in lineup. Best nose of the group. Though not quite as full of tension.
