On the nose, there is already a sense of ripe fruits – peach, fig and orange – that one misses in the other youthful Löwenstein 2014s. Along with that comes site-typical smokiness of black tea and struck flint. The palate impression here is softer and texturally richer than that of its stablemates, and in place of citric brightness we have lusciously juicy succulence. Toasted hickory and walnut, alkali and peach kernel add piquancy to the sustained, smoke-tinged finish.
