Damn... this is incredible! As soon as you smell it you know it's going to be good. So lifted it almost feels carbonic... ...The freshness is insane. Meadow flowers in the breeze, apricots, apricot stones, salted caramel and sea spray. But it's that energy lift that makes it so sublime. This wine doesn't necessarily need food either.
