This white wine seemed to be a love it or hate it wine when tried amongst a small group of tasters.  Made from the Fetească Albă grape. This is 8 years old.  The label carried a Decanter Awards Silver Medal sticker from 2014.   Deep golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is more about minerals at this point with sea air and just a touch of cinnamon.  Light to medium bodied.  On the palate, slightly sour orange marmalade with just a hint of diesel.  Nice acidity.  The salinity comes back on the long finish.  This probably needs to be consumed sooner than later.  It would be nice to try a more recent vintage.  Works better with food, it worked well with soft cheeses.
