Appearance: bright yellow
Aroma: stony and chalky aroma with minimum fruit character
Palate: silkily fine texture. minerality and chalkiness dominant. freshness and lingering finish. pretty much dry with cleanse and crisp.

A unique style of its own, it possesses. Concentration and expression focus pretty much on minerality and chalkiness both nose and palate. This is a beautiful work. If you do not mainly look for fruit, you may well like this one. I suspect that it should perform wonderfully until the end of this decade.
