    September 1, 2020 - clear pale lemon green

    Perfumed, initial fruit gives way to a minerality and structure
    Ripe large limes
    Stone fruit: soft peach, apricot
    Tropical fruit: musk melon
    Wet stone, chalk

    Dry
    Med body
    Med alcohol
    High acid
    Med+ finish, cream, dried apricot
    Mild oak tannins on the gums - probably old oak
    Less fruit on the palate vs the nose

    Vg. Cold New World fruit meets Old World-style winemaking.

    May 1, 2020 - Lots of mineral notes, a bit of straw and hay. Some marginal petrol notes too similar to an aged Riesling. The fruit profile is mostly citric with lime and green apple but also slightly unripe pineapple and apricot. The palate then with electric acidity. Unlike other New Word Chards from Sonoma no buttery texture, but rather linear and clean. Aromatics show mostly citric flavours. Solid length finish. This was a positive surprise against my modest expectations and I‘m curious to see how this ages, there is 95+ potential here.

    November 16, 2019 - Blind tasting dinner. Plenty of citrus and acidity but not much minerality. At least very little oak. Had this as a simple Chardonnay but not Burgundy, too simple to reflect really any particular place.

    November 15, 2019 - During a blind tasting dinner. Very much in the citrus corner and grassy, I was guessing Sauvignon Blanc. Table wine quality.

    May 3, 2019 - A lean and citrus version without any obvious oak which is a good trait. Very much not new world and more in the burgundy and New Zealand style.
    Sharp acidity and finish. Would appeal to
    More classical fans than new world.
