Super angular and spiky with intense acid. Some petrol like a Riesling.

Sky high acid. Petrol and mineral. What I think would happen if Chenin and Riesling had a one night stand.

Unique varietal & unique flavor profile: brownish hue to dark yellow color, whiff o' petrol, lemon balm, zippy yet silky, bit of musk - akin to Semillion in some ways but also SB but not a white Bordeaux - go figure

Rose for the apero. This one for dinner. Full bodied- stands up to roast chicken, pasta carbonara & treviso salad. Lots of flavors & this delivers the goods. Clean & acidic w/loads of mineral. Gets you ready for every bite of food.
