Tasting Notes

Exceedingly complex and original, recalling Ziereisen’s oldvines Chasselas; clinging length and detail; densely nutty and saline, and fervently chalky. All steel. The mind wants to identify the flavors of each variety but the wine refuses to allow you. It is holistic, a mélange. Very small production of an entirely original wine. —Terry Theise
