The harvest took place under clear skies, resulting in grapes of exceptional quality.

Written Notes

Delicate, elegant structure. Not a power wine like Suduiraut 1929. Relatively high acidity and not opulently sweet. Pink grapefruit with youthful freshness. Some orange peel. Slightly bitter finish with vanilla. Delicious. 2009: 18.5 points. A lot of acidity but pleasant sweetness. Some molasses. Orange and vanilla. Looks very young and elegant.
