Tasted with a 2011 McCrea, this one had a lot more on the McCrea but they were both a little strange. The McCrea had a long overly lemon tart finish that was out of balance with the more delicate front and middle. This one had better acid from start to finish. The entry was a bit more tropical but actually rather crisp. Good salinity. Very good weight in the middle. Took about 30 minutes to find its feet though. Really good balance. I think this one has a brighter and more rounded finish than the McCrea and also probably has quite a bit more left in it. Is this in a dumb phase? On decline? Who knows, but I'd drink now.

Rich, but nice mineral backbone lives up to the name. Ready to drink now.

Chalky/minerality in the fruit. Elegant and enjoyable
