Produced using only Biodynamically farmed Barley, this is the inaugural release of Luna from Waterford in Waterford, Ireland. It's aged for just a touch over 3 years (3 years, 2 months) utilizing a variety of casks: virgin oak, ex-bourbon, dessert wine. Bottled without coloring or filtering, this is batch BD01-E01-01. Let's dive in!
Full of citrus, crushed stone, slate and a touch of pepper and ash. Citrus leans heavy into lemon and lime curd, sweet and a touch savory.
Sweet on the palate, blends caramel, creme brulee, a touch of cream and slate with ash, char, a bit of an industrial note and a touch of oak.
Long finish, drawing things together; balancing the sweet desserts, the citrusy fruits and the more industrial, savory notes like smoke, ash and that slate note.
Delightfully savory, this drinks more like some of my favorite wines: combining fruit, slate and spirit to deliver a unique, complex, pour.
