I realize that I held on to this longer than most, and this wine is fine right now, but I expected more. Good Chenin flavors and acidity, but the depth was just not where I had hoped it would be. Good to Very Good. thedrunkencyclist.com
Rich gold/yellow color. Nose of quartz, salty candied lemon. Baked apple and chicken broth flavors, and more salty minerals. Medium finish, good acidity. Interesting and different. I've had this wine from two different vintages, both with no less than 8-9 years on them, and found them both a lot of fun.
The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like cut green grass and eucalyptus. The body is light/medium. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.
added later: truffles not eucalyptus and some petral
served with appetizer at selkirk manor. celebrating keith and jean's 50th wedding anniversary. at the table were myself, pat, keith, jean, sandy and martin. this is my first experience with wine from this appellation. paired with seafood medley consisting of lobster, shrimp and caviar on a bed of homemade coleslaw. a perfect pairing. initially shy on the nose but opens as it is exposed to air and comes closer to castle temperature. some find a hint of sweetness but for me it is basically made in a dry style. lots of lemon, mineral, sea breeze and calcium. will look for this again.
