Very dry, mineral driven chenin. Solid acidity. Bit of citrus on the finish.

Had a bottle about a year ago. This has gained flesh, and maybe a touch of sweetness has emerged (could be the sushi influence). Very nice wine.

Starting to close down. Decant for a few hours at least if opening... otherwise, sleepy time for a bit.

15/20 (85/100) Вино с ароматом, в котором доминируют тона окисленного зеленого яблока. Умеренная кислотность, пустоватое во вкусе. Пить можно, но зачем?

Crisp white grapes with light honey and stone finish. A great representative of chenin blanc.
