Very good wine, combining its rich yellow, yet vibrant fruit with a balanced complexity of primary and savoury aromas with a defined mineral background. Great interplay on the palate, rich and ripe stone fruit and a broad mid palate with a generous but well integrated alcohol that is carried on a very strong shouldered cut through acidity. Thoughtful to its home ground, performing above its price, but is just short on the doorstep for a long finish.

Aromas of honey, green apple, white peach, a touch of metallic aromas, hazelnut and toast from lees. Dry, high acid wine with medium body. Hazelnut comes to forefront of palette notes with a long finish. Wine feels tightly wound and could be aged further.

Druvig och söt i doften med mycket äpple, mineral och apelsin. Smak: druva och kex (!) äter med getost.

Before dinner at home with Spanish sheep’s milk cheese, Basque French cheese, and salad. Excellent balanced acid.
