Pale straw gold with sparkling clarity
Elements of both vineyard and winery inputs shine through in the glass. Aromas of musk spice merge with the rich primary fruit consisting of pears, honeydew melon and lychees. The rich fruit bouquet is then infused with more savoury elements of gun smoke, cashews and oatmeal which are delivered, in part, via part neutral oak fermentation.
The palate is a story of at least three chapters. First the rich array of fruit rides upon a viscous wave creating immediate interest. It is then buoyed in equal measure by texture and a firm channel of grapefruit acid that in unison, provide great length and direction. All these elements linger in the mouth long after the wave has broken…
All the elements are here for the wine to benefit from age with its abundant fruit, structure and length. By all means enjoyable now but more complexity awaits over the next 6+ years.
