The wine is yellow with a slight green hue on the rim (similar to a Chablis).
On the nose, there is a slight petrol component. In particular, I think that I would describe this as petroleum jelly. This is going to sound weird but I think that I agree with Ian Cauble from the movie Somm. In the movie, he describes an Australian Riesling from Clare Valley as having a nose of newly opened tennis balls. When I watched the movie, I thought that that was kind of weird. But, now I understand. This does smell like newly opened tennis balls. I also get some minerality on the nose, specifically slate. There are also some citrus fruits: some lime rind and some ruby red grapefruit. There are also some white flowers on the nose.
On the palate, the slate is definitely there. More so than probably any other wine that I have ever had before. I also get some very good acidity. Overall, there is a lot of citrus going on. The predominant fruits that I get are lime and some mandarin. There is possibly also some apricot as well as a tiny bit of tropical fruit. This wine is quite dry. It also has a surprisingly long finish. The body was medium and it had good balance overall. It was flavorful. Really impressed with this wine. This is a definite buy for me! Highly recommended. If I had to score this wine, I would probably give it around 91 points.
