Bouquet: Saline notes introduce the restrained, yet focused nose. Lemon curd, white peach, fresh roasted cashew with perfumed oak providing a sublime frame of cream and spice.
Palate: An initially creamy, mealy palate lays solid stage for the characters of lime, lemon blossom, white peach before the fine texture and mineral acid ignite a luxuriously long palate. Great balance.
Bouquet: Powerful nose of fresh lime and preserved lemon, white peach, apricot and tangerine combine with savoury sea spray, struck match, hazelnut and spiced nougat mesh.
Palate: Generous and complex in both taste and texture. A spearhead of lime citrus wave cuts a refreshing line through a creamy, textured palate stone fruit flesh culminating in a long and luxurious wine.
Bouquet: A complex and aromatic nose. A myriad of citrus and stone fruits from lemon, lime, white peach, nectarine and apricot. Integrated French oak, with nougat like lees character offer spice and support.
Palate: With initial richness, the nose transfers seamlessly to the palate creating a platform for the glowing acidity to shine through. A great sense of balance pervades effortlessly throughout.
Bouquet: A nose while richly complex, retains harmonious subtlety. 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.
Palate: Powerful fruit presence is kept in check by a graceful acid seam that builds to a lingering mineral finish echoing long on the palate.
Bouquet: Fresh cut lime opens with white peach, grapefruit and floral notes following. Oak elements are in harmony with fruit, providing a thread of spice weaving into lightly toasted cashews, oyster shell & fresh straw.
Palate: Refreshing acid chimes through the white peach and nectarine fruit wave. Savoury layers are formed by lees contact and oak spice. Finely textured silky tannins gracefully carry all elements to a lingering finish.
Bouquet: Generous and complex, with layers of ripe white peach, nectarine, honeydew and grapefruit. Smokey oak, cashew, orange blossom, oatmeal and fresh honeycomb also feature.
Palate: Dry, yet with mouth-filling fruit sweetness. Complexity of bouquet flows through to palate. Textured with harmonious balance of fruit and oak, held together by firm yet juicy acidity that drives a lingering palate.
