Description

From the Bowe-Lees-Loveys vineyard in Woodside. Lovey takes me straight to Thurston Howell III from Gilligan’s Island.

Lemon, spice, fennel, lemon zest. This is tight, lean and ripe lemony, firm flinty texture, a lot of nerve and energy, but with a gentle creaminess to offset. Length is very good, all lemon rind, ginger and nuts. More intellectual than visceral, but very good. Better again with a year or two in bottle. 93+ Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
