Bright lemon yellow. Lush nose with stone fruits, white floral notes, lemon caramel, and oak notes from the malolactic fermentation. Solid acidity (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Ripe and lush palate with citrus notes, creamy mouthfeel and a bit of spice. Long finish. Drink till 2023. (92+)

One of the best domestic Chenins I've tasted. Acidic support to some mid palate richness. If anything, I'd prefer a little more richness with the same acidity. Beggars, choosers. Lovely bottle.

Soapy, cilantro, austerity but soft and silky on the palate. A bit honeyed but good acid, too.
