Tasting Notes

Pale yellow. Reduced aromas of wet stone, pineapple and vanilla; comes across as a bit exotic in spite of its rigorous minerality. Dense and sweet on the palate, but distinctly rocky, with strong saline minerality contributing energy. This rather masculine, broad-shouldered wine is dry and backward today but has the energy and stony minerality to evolve gracefully. The salty quality carries through on the long finish.
