Judges Tasting Notes

Pale gold with greenish bronze highlights. Very complex nose with wood notes, parma violet, praline, kumquat, butterscotch, laverbread and curry leaf. Pin point precision of this utterly dry style. A silken flow in the mouth and the feeling of perfect tension from the rapier like acidity. The flavours are incredibly complex, multi-layered and mutable and completely engage the senses. This is not a wine, this is a sensational experience and a privilege to taste.
