About

89-90

Tasted as a tank sample in August 2016, more than a year ahead of its anticipated bottling, this displays a luscious meld of white peach and lime on a glossy but - for its vintage - impressively lively palate. Mouthwatering salinity adds to the appeal of an infectiously juicy finish. Hopefully time will bring additional complexity. (I had high expectations for a 2012 tasted alongside, but it was inexplicably dank and inexpressive, though seemingly not cork-tainted. It will be one to revisit if possible.)
