Purchased @backroomwines this is a delicious bottle of wine. Great fruit highlighted by the texture from the soil.

Rounder and fuller than their Orthogneiss. Melon, citrus and yellow & white florals on the nose. It's crisp and clean. Ripe green apple, green melon with rhine, lemon/lime juice, grapefruit with a touch of sugar. The granite minerality pulls on the plate during the long finish with big acidity and an enjoyable finish.

Very good. Funky-salty cheese rind, with a twist of citrus and beautiful acidity to tie it all together.
