Astonishing finish that’s creamy and salty, smoky and stony all at once. From biodynamically grown grapes.

The palate comes with the gentlest sweetness and still needs to knit together. Ample fruit, great energy and immense concentration are all evident in one juicy sip. This is a powerhouse of a wine, coiled tightly and streamlined into a toned swoop. It will release its force in due course.
