Other Reviews....
Says sold out at the winery now, but there’s often some about at retail (or fine dining, if you’re flush).
Grapefruit, yuzu, a minor amount of struck match, salted pistachio, aniseed, and a fair amount of spicy ginger oak. It’s distinctly saline and savoury, nutty, again that ginger, though it’s the flinty and powdery texture that’s the highlight here, fine acidity, and a fairly long savoury finish. Not the most intense or concentrated in the flavour department – fine boned or slightly dilute – depending on how you see things. Needs a couple of years to let the oak fold in, but a good and distinctive style. Drink 2024 - 2032+
