This wine's initial baby powder scents give way to a bone dry palate of astonishing intensity. Fermented with native yeast in neutral wood, it has almost feral complexity. Lemon and citrus flavors abound, with grapefruit and orange liqueur accents. The length and detail are outstanding; and what a bargain! Drink now through 2030.
