This is seriously good. Strawberry, raspberry, rose and, what seems like, a few dozen other organoleptic instruments are played with such precision that the harmony is pinpoint-precise and ubiquitously embracing at the same time. All this at the magic 12.5%.

Minerality and balance are the two key strokes of this wine. The soft acidity with good weight and round, rolling texture make it an absolutely wonderful experience. Perhaps a little more acidity would not be lost here, but the balance is stunning! Would be happy to have a case of this to see how it ages.
