2004 Dornier Donatus White
"(A blend of 60% Chenin Blanc done in wood, 30% Semillon in tank and 10% Sauvignon Blanc) Good pale color. High-pitched nose combines lime, white grapefruit, white flowers, snap pea and spearmint, plus hints of eucalyptus and banana. Fat and silky but zingy, with pungent flavors of gooseberry, eucalyptus and minerals. This offers terrific inner-mouth perfume and shows strong granitic character. Finishes quite long and brisk. This makes the 2003 version seem dry by comparison. Highly promising white wine, and the most intriguing bottle I sampled on my visit to Dornier."
