Pale golden straw.
A nose while richly complex, retains harmonious subtlety; suggestive of a wine that’s in balance with itself and its season. Floral, lemon & lime zest, combine with savoury notes of fresh straw and oyster shell, with a frame of oak that retains focus on the vineyard.
Powerful fruit presence is kept in check by a graceful acid seam that builds to a lingering mineral finish which echoes long on the palate. Poised texture is an outstanding feature of this delicate, yet focussed wine.
A benchmark release, a wine of tremendous balance, with nothing out of place. Powerful as it is agile, this wine is comfortable in knowing its long term future is assured. Drinking pleasure is guaranteed now, patience in the cellar will be duly rewarded at every stage over the next 8-10 years...
