93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

(from the F Block, the same parcel that goes into the Kongsgaard chardonnay):  Bright yellow.  Aromas of mirabelle and medicinal herbs; smells a bit like Chartreuse.   Surprisingly big, rich and sweet but with terrific acidity giving cut to the intense lemon curd, wet stone and wild herb flavors.  Superb texture and energy here.  Finishes with palate-staining length.  The rainfall on June 3 and 4 drastically cut the potential size of the crop here, and the harvest took place very early, on September 7.
