Community Tasting Notes 6

    April 3, 2019 - I may have to do a second note on the next bottle, as this one has been open a few days in the fridge before I'm attempting to actually mindfully drink it, but here's where we are now anyway. Straw yellow color. Clean and a bit tight nose of wet slate, minerals, lemon, and maybe a little waxy yellow fruit. Medium (+) body and acid, medium finish, and flavors of lemon, apple, pear, a little pineapple, and lingering minerality. I feel like it showed a little RS on the pop, but it's not right now, so I'll have to confirm or deny next time. Pretty good for seafood and lighter fare and porch quaffing as today. 87-88

    Edit: another bottle on 5/31/19 and can confirm the previous notes. Spot on actually.

    February 6, 2019 - Monthly Tasting Group EEE; Educational blind tasting (@ My place): White fruits, melon and some mineral impressions in the bouquet. On the palate yellow and white fruits, apricots and litchi. Very clean and pure with good acidity and some pleasant bitterness.

    January 9, 2019 - Takes six months to ferment, long mineral intensity on the back end. Crispy and delicious.

    July 16, 2018 - Weekly tasting group RWP #294: Wine and price. Can we taste the difference? (@ RK): In the bouquet litchi, pear and melon. On the palate the same white fruits, good acidity and also some sweetness. Well balanced. Ripe fruits. Elegant wine with a good qpr.
