Truly hard to explain this wine because it is seriously in a league of its own. Medium golden in the glass, the nose is ripe and spicy, with ripe/baked apple, smoke, and baking spice dominating. It's not often you find a white that is supposed to be served at 14C and decanted, but this one showed off it's richness at 12C and was let warm on the table for almost 2hrs, with beautiful acidity, richness and complexity. The finish went on and on, showing off the rich fruit notes. Every wine lover should have a chance to taste something like this as it's truly a unique wine. Tasted November 2013.
