The 2016 ‘VGW’ by 00 Wines was sourced from the Open Claim and Von Oehsen Vineyards. The heady, powerful aromas are quite gripping with toasty oak that wraps around citrus rind and bright orchard fruits, with smoky and flinty tones that round out this outstanding nose. The palate shows wonderful balance, viscosity and tons of lip-smacking acidity. Meyer lemon cream, starfruit and Pink Lady apple connect with minerals and smoky undertones. This is seriously good in its youth but will evolve well for a decade or more.
