Tasting Notes

This will ship for the autumn, and it is certainly explosive and potentially great. Lemon and guava and sweated fennel; power, spice and focus; wild lavender mid-palate; herbal smoky finish. These amazing wines are patterned more on Grand Cru white Graves than on Loire wines—I suppose Stephan wants to make his Pfalz version of Haut-Brion Blanc; it would be like him— but I find them seriously comparable to the very best from Styria, and I doubt anyone in Europe is making more compelling Sauv-Blanc at the moment. Catnip for hipsters! — Terry Theise
