Pleasantly surprised at how well this wine has held up. I opened it thinking it would come across as flat, flabby and past its prime. Not true in my opinion. Still Clean and crisp, nice lemon and grapefruit in the nose and across the palate. As it warmed in the glass, I could find some of the mineral tones. Last bottle I had, but most enjoyable.
This wine in the glass is a light straw colored with a slightly golden tinge. The nose light , melon, apple and pear it leads you to believe that a very sweet wine is to come. Your sip is rewarded with a flash of sweet fruit with a solid middle mineral structure to a nice acidic tart finish. 91
Immediately likable. Ripe lush pears and peaches on the nose with a hint of grapefruit that really comes to the fore on tasting. As it warms, some subtle pineapple and kiwi come around, along with a nice chalky minerality. Body is surprisingly full and the acidity is clear as a bell and a bit on the puckering side, which makes me immediately think that this will match well with food. Very good. Good QPR.
