Very lightly developed citrus nose with light stone and pome fruit notes as well as vegetal, floral and very light waxy hints. Bright, quite juicy, not quite dry fruit, lively acidity and some grip, vegetal and floral notes, some candy on the palate, a hint of woodruff, chalk and salt in the background, light grip, very good, again sweetish-juicy finish.

Editor note: Translate to English Herber, etwas gedeckter, deutlich erdiger und vegetabiler, auch zart rauchiger Duft mit verhaltenen, hellen gelbfruchtigen Aromen und mineralischen Tönen. Auch im Mund noch recht gedeckt, hefig, pflanzlich, erdig und etwas nussig, präsente, zitronige Säure und merklicher, sandig-trocknender Gerbstoff, nachhaltig, aber auch ziemlich rau am Gaumen, deutliche Mineralik, nicht restlos trocken, florale Nuancen, ein Hauch Kandis, guter bis sehr guter Abgang. Muss reifen, nur sind wir uns nicht sicher, ob er den rauen Gerbstoff ganz wird einbinden können.
