Savory but feminine.
R- pale straw
N- almonds, clean sea spray, gently roasted parsnip/carrot, chamomile/white flowers, nothing overwhelming, it’s very alluring and quiet.
B- awesome salinity, marcona almonds, white tea, yellow apples, mouthwatering acidity, yoghurt (malo with higher natural acidity/tang?), curry and warm spice on the back-palate. Clean, salty, mouthwatering finish.

Non-ouillé (tanks are not topped up, so the wine has some oxidative aromatics, but elevage goes on without flor yeast, so not traditional vin jaune). For the price, this wine overdelivers.
