Community Tasting Notes 5

  • Woodford Likes this wine: 88 points

    August 9, 2020 - At the open:
    Smells of lemon, grapefruit citrus, and flint
    Tastes of lemon, sour grapefruit/green apple, and a touch of orange with good minerality
    Moderate & consistent acidity

    After 45 minutes:
    Smells of lemon and faintly burnt match
    Tastes of balanced lemon and grapefruit cream supported by proper core minerality.

    This hits its stride at 45 minutes and is a solid effort. Not overly complex, but refreshing, correct, reliable and confident.

    June 14, 2020 - Such a beautiful white Burgundy -- only made in the Virginia Blue Ridge mountains from Chardonnay grapes grown at an levation of 1300 ft. Refreshing and mineral with bright lemon-y citrus. Long finish. The structuring acidity, emphatic on release, is very approachable now and assures a drinking life over the next five to six years.

    May 24, 2020 - At the open:
    Smells lemon botrytis and flint/stone
    Tastes of tart green apple balanced by convincing minerality
    Firm high acidity with fruit taking a back seat; very fresh

    This is fairly lean, but it's refreshing and correct; a nice pairing for shellfish; reliable and precise.
