"Scents of flowers and spontaneous fermentation quickly give way to riper and creamy fruits such as yellow peach, apricot and mango. The wine proves succulently light and fresh on the palate. This feeling of lightness carries nicely over into the juicy and smooth finish. One is left with a delicately creamy feel of herbs in the long after-taste. This proves plain gorgeous. 2025-2035" (FWR)

Winery Notes:
Schaefer amateurs will know “#10” as the firm, stony one. It often but not necessarily comes from the same parcel(s), but the guiding decision is based on character in this case, not origin. This wine is like slate under a microscope, each fleck and sleeve and crease is visible. A subtle nuttiness emerges, but this wine is twitching with jittery intensity, and carries a high note of ginger. -Terry Theise
