Pale, light and precise. Subtle and super clean. Very pure and sexy. Oyster shells, hints of peach. Really subtle but balanced and sophisticated. Reminds me of Raveneau in style. Gorgeous and perfect with oysters

The current release of this bottling. Always superb, and hard to find a better pairing with sushi. Long decant.

Always marvelous complexity and finesse, white peach, wet stones, petrol white tea leaves. Brilliant expression of Wachau.

Finessed, terrific complexity, bruised white peach, petrol, wet stone and a bit nutty along with tea leaves on the finish. Such a brilliant expression of Wachau.

Clean, complex, chamomile, beeswax. Fascinating textural notes that almost feel leesy - biodynamics?

Biodynamic!
Closed and oxidative at first, med-short finish. After a few hours, apple/pear nose, very dry in style, unique. Still some of the bottle remains for a 24 hour resampling.
This probably needs serious air time to get going, only bottled in 2014 after nearly 17 years resting in oak casks.
