A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. I tasted this back in early April, fresh off the boat from K&L:
Med.light gold color; bit SO2/reductive/pungent slight floral/GWT-like/lychee rather earthy/GV/slight
white pepper some complex interesting/atypical GV nose; somewhat tart rather earthy light/low-key GV/white
pepper slight tangy/metallic/earthy flavor; very long earthy some GV/white pepper rather rich/lush finish;
not the perfume of the other GV's but quite an interesting white in a quiet/low-key way.

I was not terribly overwhelmed by this wine back in April. Clearly I am now.
