Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is just way too good. Sensational aromas that almost mimic the riper fragrances of a Renner; oleander and vetiver; the palate is light, or light-ish, and creamy and very beautiful, elegant and serene, full of sweet grain and roasted corn, but it all swishes away with a feather-touch. Among the "everyday" GrĂ¼ners, this is the classiest.
