Drank with Brad and Brian after some good reds. this was excellent, fresh vibrant, tasty. My guess is that the drinking window will extend way past 2014. This is the only white I have ever ordered from Carlisle as I have been a club member for years. It will not be the last!
Very aromatic with peach, apricot and litchee notes - very much the gewurtz component coming through. Lots of tropical fruit balanced by minerality. More complex after an hour or so. Terrific example of an old style field blend.
Popped and poured, then finished a couple nights later. Aroma of pineapple and apricot, with some minerals. Taste really has the minerals, and the fruit isn't as prominent but the apricot is in there. Finish has a pretty high level of acidity. I think this probably has at least a year to really shed that and make it at its best.
