Elegant complex ripe fruit with yeasty aromas. Intense palate, rich and ripe with lots of weight, very mineral, elegant finish and very long. Drinking well now but will develop.

Aromatic, fresh and grassy, oily, butter nose. Wonderful on the palate with real vibrancy and tiered (!) fruit. Long, long toasty length yet with good apple fruit character.

Absolutely stunning creamy, complex and delicious butter fruit nose. wonderful on the palate with real vibrancy and tiered fruit. Long, long toasty length yet with good apple fruit character. Nice depth and very complex.
