Tiers before bedtime? Not quite but it was an emotional experience nonetheless.
There’s some smoothness of the cremé caramel and almond paste persuasion but here’s a wine that’s characterised by its intense crunchy acid and strong minerality. There’s a white flower character too and the fruit flavour is, well, I?d tilt at sort of a light peach/apple/citrus combination but nothing really stands out – it tastes like Chardonnay more than anything specific – which is a very good thing in my book. Subtle and harmonious, bone dry and long. It’s a big ticket item but you?re getting a pretty classy show for your money?and no food fights here either. Obviously I like this a lot.
