Really classy mouthful. Rich and waxy but finishes so clean.

Rich golden in colour, slightly oxidative und style with overripe lemons, quince, wild flowers and a healthy dose of marcipan.
On the palate this is broad but not plush, with the lemony acidity cutting through the layers of ripe & baked (& pickled?) lemons, marcipan, some spice, a (inoffensive) touch of caramel. Very nice texture and a uplifting, salty mineral finish, makes the 14% integrate seamlessly.
A very nice wine, proving that youth & freshness in whites ain’t all.
