    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

    December 20, 2013 - Buttery lemon, flowered and earth; balanced and smooth, but green and young; lingering finish.
