ALFARO FAMILY GRÜNER VELTLINER LA PLAYA VINEYARD SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS 2013
NVWE Notes: This is an exotic and impressively concentrated wine with a few years of improvement ahead of it, as oyster shell-like mineral notes underlie a rich compote of peach, preserved lemon, Panetone-fruit and chestnut honey in the nose. There is that same exciting tension between rich fruit and hard minerality on the palate, and it carries through a very long, mouth-coating finish, where focused notes of Persian raisin, preserved lemon, dark honey, coriander seed and saline minerally boldly fan-out. Built for flavorful entrees, it should grow ever more intriguing over the next two or three years. 200 cases produced.
