This is fiendishly hard to describe, but utterly wonderful. So fresh and mouth-watering and naturally succulent. If small-scale, minimal intervention wines light your boiler, but you've tasted too many badly made ones, then this will restore your confidence. It reminds us of why we fell in love with 'natural' wines in the first place, before they became a brand for hipsters to hang their ironic deerstalker hats on. 

Jancis Robinson: "Herby pear fruit and a light mealy character. Lots of citrus on the palate but the texture adds class - a light grip and a long, mouth-watering finish." 16.5 points

The Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Principia Mathematica is pure head-pruned Xarello from a 50-year-old, 2.8 hectare plot on limestone-rich soils that was put to ferment in 700-litre oak foudres with indigenous yeasts, with 20% of the volume fermented in 228-liter barriques and a small stainless steel tank. It was kept in contact with the lees for eight months and bottled in April 2016. This was a very dry and early harvest and the wines have a softer profile, very fruit-driven with aromas of white flowers, too; it is subtle, aromatic, elegant, with no trace of oak whatsoever, getting more balsamic with time in the glass, developing notes of fennel and aniseed. The palate has great balance with integrated acidity, there is good ripeness, with good volume. 7,000 bottles produced." 91 points
