Waxy and herbal on the nose, this is assertively aromatic if in an earthy, dried floral, roasted chestnut, pine resin and butcher’s wax kind of way. Rich and rather powerful in the mouth, this is intense yet not terrible complex with chunky dried fruit, apricot and citrus, flavors. This exhibits a rare rusticity for a white wine, which many might find attractive. It certainly opens up significant food pairing options with the pronounced acid and faint touch of tannin this possesses. Great for a change of pace, though this isn’t a sipping by the pool kind of white. The fruit, apple blossomy and slightly bitter and citrus scented lingers on the long, slightly grainy textured finish. You may not like this, but you will not tie from it. 89pts
