Light gold color with a real earthy funk I typically find in Gueuze. This certainly is tart with a smooth lemon pith and mellow, toasted grains. If it was carbonated, I’d swear it was a Belgian Ale. Just grabbed it out of the cellar and threw it on ice for a few minutes, doing some solo day drinking, didn’t realize it was $35 bottle. Flying solo has its advantages this time.

Robust and round, with some nice herbal notes, mineraity and balanced acidity. Just a touch of nice funk.

"Follow the white hare" Trinity said. So did I...

Cretan indigenous Vidiano fermented and aged 5 months in barrels (40/60 acacia/oak)

Dense color of brass, golden glitters.
Powerful nasal attack of autumnal forest (note ageing in acacia & oak), melissa and ripe melon turns to opulence of caramel, banana, mango and passion fruit.
Full-bodied, oily and finely rounded palate with vivid yet perfectly integrated acidity and noticeable minerality. Mint candy, sun-dried apricot drink, melon, orange peels, white currant flavors (white plum dominates if wine is over chilled).
Finishes at slow pace, correspondent to palate.
Absolutely self-confident, we enjoyed it relaxing at last evening at Crete.

2014 vintage. The wood is nicely integrated in this full bodied wine. Pear, butter, nice minerality and acidity to keep the wine lively. Like it!
