Editor note: Translate to English Herber und kühler, kräuterig-pflanzlicher Duft mit zurückhaltenden gelbfruchtigen Aromen und deutlicher, eher heller Mineralik. Auch im Mund ziemlich kühle, feinsaftige, geschliffene Frucht mit frischen kräuterigen und etwas kandiert-pflanzlichen Aromen, lebhafte, sehr feine Säure, nachhaltig am Gaumen, hat Biss, recht eleganter Stil, hefige Spuren, gute Tiefe, wirkt noch ziemlich kompakt, sehr guter Abgang mit viel Zug. Hat Zeit.
