Chilled popped and poured. Medium yellow w greenish highlights. Rich nose of tropical fruits (guava, mango) with a touch of citrus which is echoed on the palate which is rich and ripe but not over the top as it has excellent intensity and enough acidity to balance. Lovely wine; one of the best Littorai Chards I have tasted recently.
Tropical fruits and a touch of smokey oak on the nose, followed by grapefruit and juicy stones. Lacks a certain charm - just a little tight for my tastes. Alcohol is 13.9% which I find somewhat surprising given how much citrus is present. Not a generous or forgiving wine.
4th bottle, about a year after the last bottle and nearly two years after the last note. Turniing a darker gold with some hints of tan. Still quite fresh. Somewhat more of a tropical fruit profile now, riper pear and pineapple, with notes of honey. Well balanced with a firm backbone, nothing flabby about this, deft, with a long finish.
13.9% alc...that in and of itself is enough reason to celebrate... Very gold in color...the nose shouts upon opening, papaya, marzipan, lemon curd, honey, very high-toned...your palate is jolted to attention with dynamite acidity, continuing to gain strength through to the finish, where after 20 seconds or so the wine extends itself with richness - call it the richness after the minerality...
