Color lemon yellow with dark yellow shadow. Muscat smell ,incense, basil and citrus and strawberries. Full body. Good tickling in the palate, good balanced. In the mouth nice flavor of fruit and spices. Declared as a dry but it seems that some sweetens exist in background. Long, tasty finish with a little crunchy acid.
After the fruity vintage 2015, came the fruity-mineral vintage 2016,(very dear to me).Vintage 2017, for some reason I can’t find in my wine notebook. This 2018 in the picture is fruity, quite strong, with a long finish full of fruit acids and very well matching with grilled fish.
What else ? It does not matter whether we’re talking about the year 2008 or 2018 or of those between, it is one of ours favorite white wine. The wine that will win you over with its directness and charm. Wine which you can always come back because it is always different and yet stay the same.

When John Woo returned to the roots and wanted to direct some Wuxia movie, everybody assumed it would be good, and the end result was another masterpiece work. The film that we love, and we constantly return to, that never get boring same as Tamjanika Ivanovic. Michelle Yeoh and Woo-sung Jung like yellow and white Tamjanika , and Xueqi Wang like Rhone Reisling 🙂
Sincerest recommendation for the wine and the movie, this 2 masterpieces, together or individually..
