    September 1, 2014 - Medium straw color. Lemon candy, flint and watermelon rind on the nose. Strong, bracing acidity: lemon, lemon zest, mineral, a faint floral layer underneath. Not complex but intense and interesting.

    August 2, 2014 - Waxy nose, acidty and citrus palate. Cleansing palate from the acidity.

    June 7, 2014 - PnP. Pale clear straw with a tinge of green. I'm getting the same mustard, tangerine, crayon wax, and lilacs as the others. Lean and tart on entry, with a long finish and bracing acidity...but its somewhat smooth at the same time.

    This went will with a pan fried Hake, but not so much with Southwestern styled Quinoa. While I'd have to disagree with the winery's recommendation of pairing this with spicy dishes, I can see this going well with some lighter cheeses.

    Enjoyed in a Riedel Vinum Chardonnay glass. I'll have to try it in a Sauv Blanc glass next time given the tartness and acidity.

    June 1, 2014 - Loved this! I did get the stone ground mustard on the nose and palate, really interesting. Apples waxy minerals minerals minerals and high mouthwatering acidity. Had to buy a few more.

    March 28, 2014 - Pale straw, thick watery edge. Stony, with bruised tangerine, lemon candy, pear, crayon wax, lilac. With time in the glass, some Chenin-wool, starfruit and melon musk. And by the second glass, absolutely, mustard. Lovely aromas, so fresh and crisp. Lean, taut entry, with firm attack. Dry, light-bodied, almost severe at first. Lingering, Sweet-Tart sour notes; becomes more viscous as it warms, though still very much in the enamel-peeling acid phase through the first glass. Very much a geek wine. In fact, with only a few small sips at this point, I went ahead an ordered more - would love to take a look at this in 3-5 years. 12,0% abv, recommended, drink thru 2020

    PnP, served non-blind at 58F
