PNP. Cork a tad leaky. Color straw. Nose mostly grapefruit w some pear. Swishing shows creamy acid structure and light RS. Sipping actually enhances the acid a bit leaving this on the tart side. Finish med length. Good not great vintage
Nice aromatics, pale yellow color with flavors of ripe fall tree fruits. Very good concentration and subsequent length, would like to see a broader flavor profile. Drinks well now and will continue to drink well for a number of years.
PNP. peach and TDN mark the nose w maybe some green apple. swishing shows good acid, but the RS is more dominant particularly on the finish which I detect a little sulfur? sipping shows the acid and RS not integrating. good enough with indian food but not my favorite vintage of this.
PNP. This bottle was reductive so decanted. Still had a sulphuric rubbery note so left open in fridge. After three nights the nose shows dense Riesling fruit with matchstick aromas. Swishing shows great acidity and fruit but the sulfuric note is prominent and lingers a little. Not what I remember and hope the sulphur is either bottle variation or will evolve out.
