Damn...this wine is so spectacularly interesting that it made me want to tell everyone I can about it or just not say a word and horde all that I can. It opens light and juicy. Solid fruit, mineral and acidity. But that second sip is savory. The third more brambly. Then back to fruit again. Then herbal. A third of the way through the bottle it starts to build weight, more structure, more force, but then it morphs back to skipping over the ocean like a stone. And then it's gone and Lill and I just look at our empty glasses saying, Wow.

Nice! Slight hint of oxidation, nice roundness in the mid with lots of minerality and cleansing acidity on the back end. Brought this to introduce a few people to Jura and this fit the bill perfectly. Much loved.

Very very good. Sweet on the lips but with plenty of zippiness and vibrancy. Lots of dried apricot, assorted nuts, orange zest. I'd get this again in a hearbeat.

love this. Aromatic, earthy aromas, silky texture, and loves of food friendly acidity.
