Sulfur, then spice and lime and something more tropical. Sugar balanced by the acid and also a glisssando of bitterness as you swallow. Lovely with the Thai food at Chada; not complex, but delicious and characteristic of the vineyard.
Ordered 3 bottles for 8 people at a Thai restaurant, and they all showed similarly. Not exactly shut down, but definitely needs a lot of air, which none of the bottles got. Trademark Prum sulfur for the first 20 minutes, then shows classic GH limey pineapple and spice. Gently sweet, decent acidity but not racy, slender frame, not super complex or mineral/slatey, drinks clean, works wonderfully with the food, where the sugar and spice pick and amplify the Thai flavors. Goes down easy. I could drink gallons of this.
Faint straw color. Wet rocks, fresh citrus, petrol, floral nose. Lemon, pear, honeysuckle, a bit of petrol. There is a light sweetness, but the acidic zip keeps it fairly taut. Light-med body with a bit of spritz on opening that seems to dissipate with air. Short finish leaves a bit to be desired. Overall pretty nice package.
Quick note, just a touch of petrol on the nose but no real sulfur and green apple. Very elegant and showing great balance on the palate, with white pear, apple, mulled citrus and a touch of minerals. Went great with the goose..
