Tasting notes


Floral, citrus and vanilla oak aromas. Punchy acidity underneath a broad mineral palate; style majors on texture rather than fruit but is a good mix of lees character and refreshing acidity. Long, peachy and complex with a balanced, rich fruit finish. Alc: 13.5%. Drink 2012-2016. 17.25pts/20 (90-plus pts/100)
