An experiment

I’ve never really thought that Leitz wine age so well, but this is reasonably attractive. Better when it was just released, though.

The nose is a tad dirty, but there is a reasonable amount of grapefruit fruit present. It smells nice enough, but is lacking dimension. Nice fruit on the palate, but again it is quite one dimensional. It is just about interesting enough to be above sub-interest, but ageing it was a waste of time. Drink them young, boys and girls.
