Nose: Petrol, slate and apple aromas. Palate: Last bottle drank two years ago. Still has similar character in the petrol and apple qualities, but more integrated. With that said there seems to be a lack of acidic tension usually present in this wine. Not sure if that is due to age or bottle variance. Nonetheless an enjoyable drink that went well with spicy Asian chicken.
Winter Birds and Waterfowl Wine Event (Judith's House, WI): Light gold color. 2oz pour over 20 minutes. Lots of fusil, apple, some tropical fruit, citrus, sweet, seems a bit flabby tonight. Just not as crisp and bright in the past. Might have been a bit too warm and that may have hurt it a touch.
Beautiful nose of lime, peach and stone. Medium bodied with a real richness throughout, rather than overt sweetness. Outstanding complexity with a blend of peach, lime and melon and first, adding in pineapple and orange with lots of slate and mineral notes on the finish. Well balanced acidity and good length on the finish. With the roundness and richness of the fruit through the middle and the balancing acidity on the finish, this wine was very enjoyable. I’ll look for it to improve over the next few years and has a long life ahead.
Medium straw, watery rim, 8,5% abv. Medium aromas of mango, lychee, some pineapple and dried apple. Semi-sweet, medium-medium(+) acidity, medium body and low alcohol. Medium(+) flavors of honey, apple,lemon, mango. Excellent balance with acidity providing refreshing uplift, silky texture. Good length finish, crisp and purity spring to mind. Moselle, oh Moselle.
