Tasting notes

Very well made wine. Consistent fruit despite its vintage. Expressive and long finish, It is an outstanding example of the potential of this grape variety. Enough freshness to handle the evolution which makes it an outstanding wine.

Soft, subtle, delicious, complex nose. Good, rich, mature fruit, acidity perhaps a bit high but lovely crisp, fresh-fruit finish.

Vanilla, citrus, very aromatic. Fresh in the mouth, while fruit shows signs of maturity. Richly textured, with savoury, mineral back notes. Very long.
