Community Tasting Note
WineCellarTV Likes this wine: (92 points)
October 18, 2013 - Light yellow with green reflexes. Young & vibrant!
Aromas of Stonefruits and little Grapefruit. Honeydew Melon.
More fruit with Gooseberry and even Cassis (!).
Freshness of Floral and Herbal characters.
Straightforward, fresh and inviting with elegance and power!
Flavors of, again, Stonefruit- mostly Peach- Citrus and Gooseberry.
Beautiful fruity acidity. Decent Minerality.
Intense, long finish with Yellow Fruit and emphasis on Herbal Spiciness (Anise!).
In the beginning clean and tight with a soft and light mouthfeel, but developing power and density on the mid- palate and finish.
Harmonious and elegant with medium complexity.
A nicely balanced, very approachable and delicious wine!
It still appears very young with no signs of aging at all.
Beautiful crisp- and freshness, filigree minerality and a powerful finish.
