Powerful and dramatic yet sleek and polished, this has acidity that's both bright, lemony and mineral. Better from 2018 and has long-term ageing potential.

It's silky and lithe on the palate but jolted by electric acidity and a long, steely finish. Tasted in early 2018, it's still closed and taut. Hold till 2023 and enjoy for years to come. collapse

The feel here is polished and strikingly waxy. Alkaline and saline notes serve for enhanced invigoration and saliva-inducement on a resonant and rich yet refreshingly bright finish. Last tasted from cask shortly before an August 2017 bottling, this wine will have a lot more to say given a bit of time. -- David Schildknecht collapse
