Dry, mineral, oxidative. Powerful aromas of walnut, lemon skin, mushroom and countless other delicate complexities. Round and very long in mouth, haunting. Best served lightly chilled with at least 3 hours brething.
This has spent over 6 years under flor, gentle ageing and developing. It’s a wine to fall in love with but can be quite challenging for first timers. Best shared and paired with food.
