Aromas of smoke, almonds, pink grapefruit, orange zest and a little wax-like component. This ties into a note of bees wax on the palate with some apricots and oxidized undertones. The wine finishes with a med-sweet style that make it perfect later in the evening with dessert or cheeses. Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Super racy acidity, rich on the palate with stone fruit, citrus and almond. Delicious!

When "experiments" work out. This is killer! Smooth, round, not overly acidic, and quite delightful.

Apple core, pear skin, white flowers, steely with slight waxiness. Big, powerful and rich weighty minerals.

Big, exotic, lots of peculiar things to chew on: lychee, coconut water, other soft white scoopable fruits I'd have to look up (when was the last time I had dragonfruit?). Rosy. Super aromatic. Finishes like you just did a fino sherry shot—iodine, kiwi skin, salinity, heat. Winter white, & a good look for grenache gris.

What an interesting white - never had this varietal before.... The bouquet is nice, and the taste is completely different...

you don't see 100% grenache gris often. refreshing fruit, some citrus with a mild and pleasant oak finish.
