The power of Old Wente. Needs more time.

With air this picked up some white pepper and baking spices. Butter was present. Didn't seem overly manipulated. Would love to try on day 2

Stunning nose of white pepper, guava and taffy leap from the glass. Pineapple, flint and lychee fill the mouth. Finish is bright and fresh with a slight salty ocean element. Love the acidity in this wine.

Pretty tasty and ripe. It's interesting to see what Wente can do with plenty of sunshine. Very different animal but I really enjoy it for what it is not what it isn't

Bright, fairly crisp, a touch dry, seems like it was in oak for about a hot minute. Really delightful!
