We gathered last night for braised beef and an array of powerful Turleys (on which more later). But we started our evening with this. Our host had received it as a gift, and it was, to her, a curiosity, unknown.
In the glass it was clear and very pale gold. On the palate it was salty, steely, like stones, very savory. Someone remarked she might have thought it a red had she tasted it with her eyes closed. It offers pale, delicate aromas: a little apricot and lightweight blossoms. It's dry like metal, with a long finish.
This is a haunting wine, a ten on the interestingness scale. More, please.
