Bracing and austere, this is a difficult wine to warm up to at first. It starts with hints of chalk dust and lime, adds notes of green apple and petrol, then swings back toward mineral on the slightly drying finish. Impressively concentrated; try it after 2010, when it should be more open for business.
Shows promise, exhibiting classic petrol, apple and citrus aromas and flavors, but wraps up with a tart finish that resembles tinned citrus. It's plump in the mouth, long but a bit metallic on the finish.
