Editor note: Translate to English Fester, etwas pflanzlicher und deutlich erdig-mineralischer Duft mit Zitrus- und Pfirsichnoten, deutlich angetrocknetem Apfel sowie floralen, minzigen und zart holzigen Spuren. Zurückhaltende, wiederum recht fest gewirkte, nicht völlig trockene Frucht, sehr feine, lebendige Säure, deutliche, erdige Mineralik, kräuterige Aromen und zart nussige Anklänge, nachhaltig und recht dicht am Gaumen, gewisse innere Ruhe, vielschichtig, hat Tiefe, noch wenig entwickelt, mürber Gerbstoff, sehr guter bis langer Abgang mit holzigen Nuancen und recht deutlich Heidelbeeren.
