    May 13, 2016 - Its colour wasn't all too striking: straw-coloured yellow, very clear and hardly any particles visible. The nose seemed like not so few natural wines. Rather lame and far from being refined or even sophisticated. Sorry for this utter bovine generalization! I got plenty of must - apple and pear must - cider, a mute hint of mashed bananas, a not so mute one of hazelnuts and for some reason strange impressions of clean limy water pipes. Actually, the nose wasn't me at all! My palatal impressions opposed to the nasal ones drastically. Especially on the second day. The taste was far more precise, earnest and nicely rigid and by far not as cider'ish as the nose tried to predict. Okay, I got juice of red apples, pears and a few bananas. Sure! However. here there were additional features of green twigs, green pepper, other herbs, a hint of well fitting nutty oxidative'ness, a bit of coconut, maybe some soap and most definitely a lovely stern saltblast. Summarized: there was complexitiy and plenty of aroma! Furthermore, on the second day it appeared much more blanaced and inclusive. It was and is still a very young wine after all! On the palate it had plenty of character, grip, loveable goofy seriousness - perhaps dotty seriousness is more suitable, even a fair amount of density and assonant refinement. Give it some time to evolve … in case you were able to hunt one of the few bottles. For me surely a downright decent and somehow educational wine. A more appealing nose -> 89 or 90 points would have been possible.

    May 13, 2016 - Private Tasting (@Private location): Popped and poured.
    Clear, youthful pale golden color. Right from the start detectable as special, some kind of orange/natural wine with lots of aromas of mellow red apple, cider, musty. It opens up over time and white flower came too.
    Dry, good acidity, reductive notes, salty mineral notes, must. Interesting wine, quite young, but not my preferred style of wine, so not rated here.

    May 13, 2016 - An absolute geek wine. Lots of apple, cider aromas upfront. With more time you get some white flowers, banana juice and bubble gum flavors too. Appeals young. Not really my kind of nose. Palate shows way better with a strong salty component. Needs food imo.
