Straw colored. Lovely spiced apple aromas, with a touch of nutty oxidized notes too boot. Relaxed and effortless on the palate, with just enough fruit to keep it buoyant and just enough acidity to keep it moving. Impeccable balance and delicious flavors. Wish I had lots more.
Very orange in color raising oxidation concerns, but did not appear on nose and palate. Steely minerality on the nose. More of the same on the palate. Fruit flavors missing. If my bottle is any indication, I would drink these up.
My last bottle of these. Truthfully, if I had more confidence in them not being oxidized, I would have waited even longer. No harm. This bottle was in great shape and drank quite well. Light golden in color. The nose is gorgeous. Really pretty with lemons, oranges, orange peel, some sea air too. On the palate, not quite as good. Not as complex as I hoped but still some complexity. Orange peel and lemons. Slightly bitter in an innocuous way. Nice finish. This dry as a bone. One of those wines I drank a lot of and now I am done. Good bye old friends.
Some different wines with friends (Sharon and Sashi's): I was quite worried about this one with all of the bad bottles reported. Luckily, the bottle was pristine (purchased on release). Very light golden in color. The nose has pears, lemons, wax and sea air. Complex and delightful. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, this is bone dry with citrus, pears, and chalk. Silky texture. Layered complexity. Exactly wine the hoped it would be.
