Editor note: Translate to English Fester, noch unentwickelter und herber Zitrusduft mit verhaltenen Pfirsichnoten und intensiver, herber kräuteriger Würze sowie deutlicher Mineralik im Hintergrund. Feinsaftige, klare, zunächst eher zitrusbetonte Frucht im Mund, mit Luft mehr Steinobst, wieder deutlich kräuterige und auch zart florale Aromen, feine, lebendige, durchaus zupackende Säure, sehr gute Nachhaltigkeit am Gaumen, im Hintergrund eher herbe, dabei hochfeine Mineralik, ganz zart ölig, hat Biss, gewisse Tiefe, sehr guter Abgang mit Schliff und Zug. Hat Zeit.
