Greenish yellow hue and pronounced tears. The nose is full of character with scents of yellow ap-ple and roasted courgettes and aubergines. Calm and dignified. On the palate are discreet notes of golden yellow fruit, marigolds, camomile and strawberries; excellent mouth-feel with great harmony, and plenty of grip and substance. Also fine extract sweetness and balanced acidity. Deep and broad-shouldered, yet lean at the same time, this wine opens up with air. Very exciting! (tasted by wine academic Johannes Fiala)
