2018 Leidenfrost Vineyard
flint - lemon verbena - orange peel
A Grand Cru is always Grand, even in a challenging vintage. Leidenfrost is a Grand Cru, if not the Grand Cru. To release such fantastic quality in 2018 is a tour de force. We certainly worked hard this vintage, but this terroir really delivered great dimension.
