“From Heerkretz and Holberg vineyards. Middle age vines, that is, not old vines or young vines. Porphyr seems to tick a lot of boxes, year in-year out.

Steel and wet slate scents. Austere perfume. Some greenery, herbs, briar, then green citrus and lime juice. Understated and appealing. Steely in palate. Rapier thrust of glass shard-like acidity with a splash of juiciness around it. Set in the tonic water vein. Ultra quinine. Fascinating.”
