Beautiful aromas of white peaches, crushed rocks, candle wax, and lemon rind along with a touch of quince emerge from this medium-bodied, crisp, flavorful effort. Excellent acidity as well as a long finish suggest it will drink well for 10-15+ years.

Very simple muted nose. Slightly catty aromas and pretty heavy - slightly astringent. Rather rustic.
deep golden color, beeswax, creamy, subtle coconut aroma from the oak. medium + body. delicious.

Nice & crisp, without the overbearing grassy flavor of some Sauvignon Blancs.

This wine seduces with its subtle beauty. Light on the palate, but mind-boggling in its complexity, with gardenia, jasmine, smoke and lemon curd and only a slight suggestion of gooseberry. But what I love the most about this wine is its minerality - you can almost taste the gravelly soil of the appellation. Truly a standout and in its prime drinking window. To wait any longer would be to risk the wine losing its acidity.
