Community Tasting Note

  • PSPatrick wrote: 92 points

    August 1, 2013 - We drank the wine over two evenings. It was medium yellow/golden in colour and offered a very mineral nose, with aromas of peach, lemon and ripe pear. On the palate the medium-bodied wine showed minerals, restrained lemon, peach and pineapple flavours and a hint of sage, paired with medium-plus smooth acidity, a good, slightly creamy mouthfeel and tremendous length. The warm vintage came through; the wine was luscious and utterly drinkable, though it lacked some of the freshness I long for if it comes to Riesling. The wine showed well right from popping the cork, but I liked it best on day two as it became even more balanced and the acidity even smoother over night. Great wine. 92 for now.
