Loved this. Pours light and clear. Very lively and grippy with dusty red fruit, and floral notes zooming along electric acidity. Wild and unpretentious.

Reading the reviews, this is a challenging wine that has polarized the critics. Personally I'm in the Lawrason camp. Although this wine has some nice firm grippy tannins, it really suffers from high acidity and bitterness. Dry Heads will love this wine, it literally drys your tongue, leaving it chalky. It's a well made wine minus its balance issues. It's also very light bodied which will disappoint a flock of folks.
