In the bouquet minerality which reminds me of sea shells. On the palate very dry with a lot of tart apple acidity and minerals. There are some signs that this wine is very mature, which is not really a surprise after it was revealed. Beautiful, precise and complex wine, which I personally probably would have preferred a bit younger. I nevertheless score it.
Dreamtasting #4 (Restaurant de Watermolen, Kasterlee): Stony, mineral nose with good focus, clean, bright, tart, interesting nuances of flintstone and soap. Lean (not thin) body and pronounced acidity, spicy hints of cloves and nutmeg, also rubber, a faint hint of oxidation in the back. Well developed, wonderful wine, yet very hard to describe and determine. 17.5-18/20
Pretty dern good for a 11.8% AbV Sauvignon Blanc (tongue firmly in cheek). (Tongue removed from cheek) I enjoyed it greatly, but I expect that others who shy away from white wines with some degree of oxidation will not find this as pleasurable as I.
