While the attack of this dry wine is akin to biting into a perfectly ripened white peach, notes of salt and slate accumulate on the palate, lending a profound impression of minerality. The mouthfeel is rich and full bodied, yet high-toned acidity adds structure and a prolonged finish. It's drinking well now, but still quite taut and should open gorgeously through 2025.
