Brilliantly, light yellow in color with greenish tints. Strong and lively nose, typical Malagouzia, suggesting rose petal with floral aromas and sweet spices, melon, litchi with a note of honeysuckle. Round and mellow on the palate, fat but balanced, high in alcohol with plenty of finesse. Well structured, reminding the nose aromas with a hint of rosemary. A richly textured wine with superb length and balance. A classy wine with long finish and persistent aromas.

The 2021 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked, dry and comes in at 13.48% alcohol. In its youth, about three months in bottle when tasted, this is all about the youthful features—exuberant fruit, pungent aromatics, a fair bit of power for this grape and excellent depth. Big, ripe and intense, this might not always be the highest-personality offering in the brand, but right now I like it a lot in its own style. We'll see if it holds its balance over a few years, though. It sure shows great today, but it did flatten a bit fast after being recorked for a few hours. In some ways, it looks like one of the more interesting ones so far, but I'm not so sure that will continue if you hold it for too many years.
