Chamomile for days. Minerals, mossy, pear, bruised green apple. Acid slightly more subdued than what I was expecting. Formidable length. A joy.

2013. Wow! Laser like acidity. Bright and chalky. From his "young" vines ca. 50yrs

My girl doesn't absolutely love Chenin, but she loved this; so I will forward my attempts to change her mind.

Amazing with both fish and any Mediterranean food. Or by itself. Sweet and fruity yet crisp with no lingering after notes.
