"The botrytis selection we made in this vineyard left enough botrytis so the remaining grapes were ripe enough for VT standards. The nose shows delicate nutty and toasted aromas with great minerality. This is confirmed on the palate with crisp acidity and very stony flavours. The fermentation was very slow and this wine spent an extended period on cask on its fine lees for more ‘élevage’ time." —winemaker
"Pink-tinged gold. Aromas of soft citrus fruits, minerals and toast, plus a suggestion of red berries; one smells the acidity here. Then supersweet and concentrated, but with the cutting acidity giving this VT a wonderfully juicy character. The wine's stony underpinning accentuates the impression of energy on the very long, pure aftertaste." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

"A sweet, smoky thread winds through this, accenting the baked peach, cardamom, papaya, candied blood orange and crushed pine needle notes. A finely layered wine, subtly weaving in the powerful acidity, while the smoke note gains intensity toward the stony, mineral-driven finish. A lot of power partnered with equal finesse. Drink now through 2030. 160 cases made." —Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator
