Terrific nose highlighted by lime/grapefruit and apple scents as well as subtle leesy notes. Fairly restrained, steely, and tight in the mouth at this point with very pronounced mineral notes, almost like concentrated mineral water. Crisp texture, good purity. If the depth of fruit flavors evolves to match the nose, this will be outstanding. - HK 2010-09-02
