"The 2019 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked, dry and comes in at 13.21% alcohol. A nice bargain, this screwcapped Malagousia is aromatic and expressive this year. It's fun just to smell, but it tastes great as well. It has good concentration for the grape and the style but even better freshness. There's just a bit of bite on the finish. This is a grape I have often thought works best when very young. That is true here, too, but it will certainly develop over the next few months. Under screwcap, it should hold well for several years, maybe more than indicated. There's no reason to wait, though. It's worth leaning up on the score today, but don't expect this to be as interesting when you lose the freshness."
