From a screwcap bottle. Mineral driven along with petrol. background fruit in the melon and pear range, with some notes of honey. Good body with some viscosity finishing with med acidity that is refreshing but by no means searing. Shortish finish with some pithy elements. Given vintage and vineyard it is somewhat simple and one noted, and it seems to be missing something with some mid-palate vapidness, but I enjoyed it with sushi. At 15-20$ this would feel like a bargain. At $30+ somewhat disappointing
