(at United Kingdom, 17 Sep 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2023
Gorgeous fresh, floral notes on the nose, with touches of honey. Full-bodied, rich and complex on the palate. Good acidity, there's real depth and interest here. Certainly ready to drink, this is lovely. The alcohol is just a touch on the high side, as is fairly common among 2019 whites, but this is nonetheless very enjoyable. A proportion is aged in oak with regular lees stirring.
