Although I would drink 1 bottle of gewurztraminer in 2000 wines, it usually is Rippon. And I should drink more of this wine. It is such a leading light. Nails the savoury, lo-fi, textural, skin fermented, lees raised, complex expression. If not a world benchmark. Every list worth its salt should have this on it.

Smells sweet but not bubblegummy and cartoony, more Turkish market spice and rosewater bath in the most refined, evocative sense. Succulent in texture, concentrated flavours but again, a ripple of chalky texture, bright core of mixed-minerally acidity, a chew to finish and this beautiful, lingering, fresh sweetness. Candied almonds, dried citrus peel, green apple, faint nutty characters. Just wonderful. Such an intriguing, beautiful wine, and with so much future potential. Extraordinary.
