WOW… this wine is bold, intense, rich, concentrated and some more! For reference, this 2020 is the latest release of my runner up for 2022 Wine of the Year with a spectacular 96pts. This year’s version is as memorable and special, with more tropical notes and richness than its predecessor, due to the hotter growing conditions. While I was a fan of the brighter acidity of the 2019, many of my colleagues have scored the 2020 higher. An incredible nose of lemon curd opens the way for a symphony of aromas including vanilla custard, white peach, grilled pineapple, sea dust and chamomile. On the palate, the tension and energy are palpable and the transition from the orchard fruits to the minerality component is absolutely spectacular. A blend of white peach, golden apple, honeysuckle and zippy mango transitions beautifully towards river rock, salinity and chalky texture past the mid palate which brings an extra layer of depth. The finish is incredibly long and complex, suave and sexy, offering white pepper, cardamom and a hint of hazelnut. (CWC, 9/2/23). 119 cases made.
