A lovely wine that defies its overly fruity expectations of being “Smaragd” level ripeness. Great minerality and taut melon/tropic character. White pepper fo sho. Perhaps needs more time in bottle. Tough to justify its $60 price tag.

I love this with age but I have nowhere near enough self control to let it age myself

A green vegetable salad, peas, asparagus, spinach oh my! Yellow plum and a pungent minerality augment the palate! Thickly textured, but tastes cool and rich at the same time.

Demonstrating some richness and damp aromas while maintaining focus. A lovely Smaragd that exhibits great balance. Talcum, grapefruit, white peaches, white pepper, pineapple, tropical
