Community Tasting Notes 58

    September 5, 2021 - Med gold with a copper hue. Surprising. Med (+) aromas of overripe pear, yellow apple, lemon, lime, honey, lots of petrol, white flowers, wet stone. Dry, with only 3g/L RS. Med (+) acidity, med alcohol (12%). Med (+) flavor intensity and length with a nice mineral finish. Still, this seems like an off bottle as it is quite different from the 2017,

    July 17, 2021 - Tart green apple, lemon peel, wet stones and chalk. A little sour on the palate. Maybe a bad bottle? Was expecting something better.

    July 14, 2021 - (When prompted) I can appreciate notes of chamomile on the nose. On the palate , when prompted, I can sense some tropical notes here but it’s all quickly overwhelmed by a tidal wave of acidity. Though it may be my style, for balance sake I think this wine would really benefit from ~10gr/L of residual sugar. Happy to get a chance to try this while dining out in Ithaca. This wine shows better in my opinion as it nudges closer to room temp. I’d suggest letting it warmup a bit.

    June 16, 2021 - Golden in the glass, with lemon and slate the most obvious elements going on. The acidity pops and is quite pleasant, very solid QPR here
