2015. Pulled out of the cellar to go with some goat cheese and baguette and was surprised how much we all loved it. Tropical, stone, and citrus fruits showed up at different times. Had enough acidity to go with the cheese, but a bit of residual sugar to make my daughter happy as she starts to try drier wines.

Lemon, subtle pineapple, stony? Someone else said wool, I'll have to investigate a bit more. Driving acidity, dry, oak on finish.

This tasted like decent white wine, nothing more or less.
