    Room temperature when drinking: 15 ℃

    Eyes: White wine smells Nose: Smoked bacon comes up, soft disinfection water, a little 75% medical alcohol. Then minerals emerge, clear spring water, Chardonnay white Portuguese, naturally transformed into fruity aromas, slightly green fruits (no green astringency), green apple lollipops, white heart green pomelo, spring in April, nectar, Green grapes, fresh blueberries, German sausages. The sense of layering is more obvious, pure and clean, mellow and soft, not jerky.
    Taste Palate: slightly sour green grapes, a little tannin, little sweetness, oak barrels provide the aroma of nuts and bread to be baked, fresh walnut meat with high humidity, slightly bitter, minerals, chalky soil, soot, quick lime , Ashes, chalk ash. The performance of peat is harder, or a more solid finish: medium long, green apple jelly, clear sweet spring, bamboo leaf water, refreshing minerals, fresh walnuts with little detectable bitterness, and sweetness in the second half, Yellow rock sugar peach gum, the sweetness is still very low.

    Nose: 90/100
    Palate: 88/100
    Finish: 87/100
    Body: 88/100
    Overall: 88/100

    Overall: Smelling the fragrance makes people feel the spring breeze blowing. I can't help thinking of the iced dry white portuguese, mixed with refreshing fruity fragrance. The peat smell after the entrance is stronger than when it smells. Qingyuan and distinctive personality.
