Citrus and wooly oxidation. Man I always love this wine. Can you beat this under $20?!

The nose is full of citrus - lemon, lime and bit of orange, a splash of grapefruit - with some excellent minerality and salinity on the other side of the scales. The palate follows suit, with an acidity level that is nice, but not quite as racy as I expected. Minerals linger on a finish that serves as a lovely reminder of a beautiful sip of white wine.

Decent structure, medium finish, fruit is too flat for me. It’s my first time drinking this grape and it feels like a poor-man’s Condrieu 🧐.

2017 vintage. Lots of lemon flesh and peel, white grapefruit, apple skin, little hay, chamomile, white rocks. Medium-bodied and pleasantly textured.
