    June 1, 2019 - When a wine hits just the right way it’s obvious. I had opened a few of these, and always liked them. Tonight’s bottle took it to a different level. It had the expected lime zest, tart apple and deep, salty minerality. It tasted like a Saar wine. Where it made the leap was on the palate, where the brightness was more than just acid, it was an integrated, and richer expression. There was depth allied to freshness. It had more layers of flavor, and that made it an engaging, rather than just satisfying, drink.

    March 11, 2018 - Zingy and bright. Maybe a little one dimensional. Fine for what it is but I guess I prefer a little more fleshiness.
