Description

From the warmest part of the Langenberg vineyard, which is composed primarily of fossil-rich fine limestone. The soil is poor, and the vines are the estate’s oldest, at fifty-five, which keeps yields correspondingly low. The only hint that it was a warm year is the smooth yellow fruit, the rest is pure terroir: this is an effortlessly elegant, lean, pure and floral wine, with a fine density. To balance the ripeness, there is a pronounced slightly bitter stoniness that builds to a crescendo on the finish, leaving a pleasant sensation of heat behind it.
