      Bright straw. A piercing, energetic array of citrus and floral scents, complicated by strong minerality and a note of white pepper. Bitter lime pith and quinine flavors gain flesh and weight with air, taking a turn to sweeter tangerine and quince. Strikingly balanced and precise, with a long, spicy, mineral-dominated finish. This should be even better with a couple year of bottle age.

      Light, bright straw. White flowers, lemon curd, orange peel and minerals on the nose. Vibrant, precise citrus and floral flavors are underscored by zesty minerals, which add clarity and tangy lift. Pure and brisk on the finish, which repeats the orange note. This surprisingly approachable wine reminds me a bit of chenin blanc.

      Fine and crackling, with lime, white peach, mineral and freshly cut chive notes and a juicy, bracing finish. Textbook and delicious. Drink now.
