Great acidity and Chenin character, although not the most harmonious vintage for this wine.

Super clean with bright minerality. Really opens up after about a half hour and starts showing some amazing chenin character. Great stuff

Still quite hard edges on this. Searing acid. I was more impressed w the evolution of the 2012 recently, but I love drinking these wines
