Fully mature golden coloring, almost like a mature sauternes. Some initial funkiness that took about 30 minutes to clear, leaving behind some rose petal, petrol and stone fruit notes with a dash of honey on the finish. For a time it seemed more of a gewurtz style than a pinot gris. Drink up if you have any.
Drink up, as this is deliciously mature now. Still some pretty yellow/orange fruits, also some spice notes. It's fairly rich on the palate, but not heavy. Perhaps there's a trace of alcohol on the finish, but the wine is a bit warm. The persistence is lovely - carrying from one sip to another. It's long enough for me to write an entire tasting note. Really though - now is a very good time to drink this.
Very sad that this is my final bottle. Lots of apricot, waxy honeycomb, a little quince and some lemon curd balanced by light acidity. Mineral component really integrates with the fruits. Faint and natural oxidation from its age.
