Vibrant, pale green and golden straw in colour, with a bouquet offering delicate and steely aroma’s. There are notes of lush green fruits, apple, pear, citrus and limes and hints of rock salt and mineral complexity. Underlying Stone fruit linger on the palate, with the soft tones of freshly toasted chestnuts derived from fermentation in fine French oak barriques. The palate is clean, fresh, vibrant and mineral tight, with longer more mineral stream lined acid balance and less obtrusive oak. The retention of higher than previous levels of malic acid, and only some malolactic fermentation has lead this wine down a path of rejuvenated elegance. The fruit is concentrated and complex and refreshing, with the seamless fresh crisp acid and a structure for aging. Ageing potential: This wine has been pre-cellared prior to release and is drinking superbly and will also offer future reward when cellared in optimal conditions.
