The 2022 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked and dry and comes in at 12.97% alcohol. On the elegant and bright side this year—the 2022s seem to have good acidity and freshness—this still doesn't lack for concentration of flavor and mouth-coating texture. The pure pears and citrus notes combine to make this delectable even now. In bottle about four months when tasted, this does show some immaturity, and it will likely be better in the summer. It won't take long to come around, though, and it looks like another winner. This will hold a few years, but there is no real point to holding it too long. It will be great this summer, and I'd drink it then or in its first two or three years to take advantage of its exuberance, flavor and freshness. The questions about development tend to give these a bit of a ceiling. Still, it is worth noting that this 2022 was still vigorous and and not completely developed when retasted a couple of days later. It is just irresistible. Let's lean up a bit for the moment.
