Tasting Notes

Wine tasting: 29 May 2020
Appearance
A clear, lemon colored wine with medium- color intensity.
Nose
The wine has a clean nose, the development is still youthful. The wine is quite aromatic, it has a medium+ aroma intensity. We smell sweet yellow fruit and vegetables. The nose experiences aromas of apple, peer, ripe gooseberries, ripe grapes, almonds, elder flower and grass. when the wine has had some air, the grassy scents disappear and we smell more honey instead.
Palate
A dry wine with a medium level of alcohol (13%), and medium acidity. The wine is quite expressive and has a pleasantly full mouth feeling. We give both body and flavour intensity a medium +. Moreover we taste a pleasant tingling sensation on the tongue.
The flavor palate consists of citrus fruit and shows malolactic fermentation. We taste grapefruit, ripe gooseberries, a bit butter and yogurt and and a striking flint flavor.
Quality Assessment
It is a good to very good wine. Good to drink now, it will not further improve. The wine shows a rich fruit palate, is elegant and well balanced.
