Golden yellow in color.

Creamy nose of lemon curd and custard. Great acidity, powerful presence with notes of apples, hint of lemons and this lovely creamy texture. Complex wine already. Very young still.

Slight botrytis nose with honeyed floral notes. Great mineral, lemon curd flavors with nice acidity.

Pop and pour.

Lovely nose of blackberries, wood spice/tobacco and vanilla. Disappointing on the palate, thin, with plenty of heat and a short finish. Will let breathe over night and reevaluate.

SS 89pts.
