Makes Albariño seem worthy of varietal royalty. Interesting fruit complexity: full dose of soft pear, ripe peach and it's pit, and lime zest. MLF and/or shorter sur lie because no floating evidence but butterscotch/honey is there. Albariño's heavier succinic (salty) acid, some barrel age, ..smoky limestone?, moderate plus acid finish, Only 12.5% alc.

Young and powerful. Chalky. Chablis-esque.

Apricot everywhere! Incredibly aromatic, ripe peaches, floral, minerals, a little sour and bitter mid palate but the lasting acid balances out the ripe stone fruits. I want to drink this by the beach, in a bikini, eating peaches and lobster while watching the waves of a hot summer day.

2015 vintage. Very acidic like the '13. Strong perfume of citrus and citrus flowers. Lime and salinity. I could drink this all day. Ian Brand does it again.
