    January 9, 2015 - Powerful white. Pleasant nose jumped out from the glass with coconuts, butter, citrus. The palate is full and rich and the after taste is long. The sweetness is a little too aggressive for me but I think the time will soften it. This is not an elegant dancing white, this is a full body powerful white that should not be served before some medium to light body red. Even after 4 hours in glass, the weight and complexity of this wine did not fade a bit. It keeps saying: I am the boss. Nice! 12 to go.

    December 31, 2014 - Young but stunning wine. Shockingly good. Trumps anything I have tasted to date. Tropical and citrus but controlled by the sheer mass of fruit and structure. Wood resin and marshmallow glimpse outward through a streak of mineral. Harmonious and perfectly balanced. It makes me shudder thinking this might actually be slightly closed. In 3-5 years this could be a perfect wine. Sublime.

    December 11, 2014 - Dry, crisp and minerally; medium-plus body and a long finish. Quite dry, perhaps slightly closed at this point. Would recommend waiting until 2015-2016 to try this again.

    September 12, 2014 - The wine was medium lemon/green in colour and offered apple, pink grapefruit, lemon, nettle, vanilla, butter and lactic notes on the nose. On the palate the wine showed apple, pink grapefruit, lemon, vanilla, smoke and lactic notes, paired with medium-plus acidity and a creamy mouthfeel. The incredible length of the wine clearly stood out; lemon and mineral notes lingered on the finish for quite some time. The medium-bodied wine seemed young, the oak still was quite prominent, but not off-putting. I actually liked the wine a lot.

    May 16, 2014 - Amazing nose of lemon, butter, whites peach, wet stone and apple, wonderful texture on the palate with great fruit throughout always restrained somewhat by the minerality
