Following similar thoughts on the Pinot Gris, the back label talks about a wine with ripe lemon sherbet and Turkish delight and I was expecting something rich and evocative.
Yet it’s again quite neutral, the nose carrying promising hints of Gewurtz and Gris , yet with a sharply defined, frustratingly angular palate with not all that much sweetness either (fruit or sugar). More richness to match that nose would make this so much more interesting.
For all the talk of unconventional winemaking, this looks surprisingly staid, if hinting at much much more – and the texture and fragrance suggest promise. Best drinking: 2016-2017. 16/20, 87/100. 13%, $25. Would I buy it? No.
