2019 has real potential to be also deemed as an outstanding vintage with wines showing finesse and capability for aging. The growing season was consistent with little in the way of wild temperature swings, heavy rains or drought and the vast majority of the grapes were allowed to reach full phenolic ripeness.
The wine has a particular freshness and concertation of minerality, showing notes of flint, pebbles and lime. Due to the phenolic ripeness this vintage also shows some floralness of wild meadow flowers along with peach and pear.
This wine can work very well with thicker fish such as tuna, turbot, scallops. But it can also go well with Hungarian tarragon-chickens soup “Ragu Leves”.
