Lightwell Survey "Hintermen" Red, 2020, 750ml
A blend of 59% Petit Manseng and 41% Vidal Blanc. We gotta be honest, it looks like Sauternes. Like someone took some honey, added some marigold and smashed ‘em together into a magical yellow nectar. With a face like that, it has a lot to live up to. The nose does not disappoint here and it's exploding out of the glass. Sweet pear, lychee, jasmine, honeycomb… we could go on. All that sounds like you’re in for a terribly unbalanced glass of high octane fruit juice but NAY!!! The palate, while certainly having texture, is quite balanced with a brilliant acidity that cleans up any lagging fruit elements. Careful of letting this get too warm as it will develop a lot of richness. Bravo! Dear Ben, Bravo! 95 cases produced.
