At Racines. Served at a reasonable 50F or so. Faint citrus, apricot-tang, booze sticks out in an unbalanced way. Like a glass of whiskey. After 1 1/2hrs alcohol finally integrated with the rest of the wine. Lychee fruit popped out, became all together another wine....fruit fwd, subtle. Wish we had it decanted.

I think I'm in love but we need to talk about it.

If you don't like this, you don't get it. Super unique and only a few acres of vines devoted to white varietals at the estate. Exotic fruits are muted with the primary characteristics showing spices, flint, muggy. With time there is more pear and pineapple.

Feeling HOT HOT HOT. As in alcohol. It's a correct wine from a varietal standpoint but wow is it a throat burner. Too young.
