Expressive nose of mixed fruits, peach pits, and sweet cut grass. Hint of sweetness, peachy, but plenty of acidity and minerality to balance, with classic white pepper in the finish. Paired beautifully with wood-fired-grilled salmon (dill, black pepper, and garlic), asparagus, and baked potato.

Unfortunately, I am one of those that (in addition to balance and complexity) does appreciate a higher acid wine and some brett. I am also somewhat poor in my notice of a corked wine ( I have a lower threshold than some of my peers). Please take my comments with a large grain of salt in this area. I, too, though follow a similar tasting procedure as you.
