Label story
  • From the early days when the wine were just assembled, it was rather clear from its backward power that it had a long way to reach its apogee, so better to start counting down immediately.
2013 'Count down' no 3 originates from:
  • Genesis low 1st fraction

Tasting recently after bottling (September 2014)
  • Very immature
Tasting summer 2017
  • Color: Middle yellow
  • Smell: Generous and open smell, some petrol has now emerged, like from very ripe apples
  • Taste: A good crisp acidity keep up the soft wine, elevated with a long after taste
