On a glorious night I had this wine among many. Served blind, it immediately stood out. Then I gave it my full attention. And fell in love.
Our second rendez-vous only confirmed my first impression.
The aroma jumps right out of the glass. Sometimes this means a charming but rather one-dimensional experience. Not the case here.
This lively fella shines with its intriguing aromatic complexity. Flinty smoke, wet stone, anis, green pepper, gooseberry and a sort of candied fruit. Or is it honey? I’ll leave that up to you.
A crisp acidity blends in beautifully with a light creaminess. A pure wine with such a strong character.
