Holy Joly! A gorgeous, glossy golden hue that’s slightly cloudy in the natural, Joly way. A beautiful perfume of orange citrus and honeysuckle. Wild but not funky. Not even sure of that makes sense but I think you would get it once you smell it. On the palate it’s marmalade and heavily bruised apple...reminds me a lot of the 2013 I had earlier this year...but more powerful. The snappy acidity gives it a long, long finish. I adore these wines.

I don't normally post work wines, but this is pure finesse and balance. Chenin in top form. Magic in a bottle.

Tastes of apricot and honey with beautiful white flowers and good acidity.

Great wine with dinner at Oxheart. Upfront fruit washed down with a tsunami of funky acid bitter goodness.
