Bright lemon-green in the glass, with lively aromas of pear, jasmine and cloves. Vibrant, concentrated fruit flavours – first fresh lychee and white peach, then baked apple crumble and ginger. Intense yet balanced. A fresh and balanced spine of acidity, and a glossiness to the wraparound texture that is a real feature of this wine.
Lots of personality – complex and layered – the creaminess of plenty of lees influence is in harmony with the ripe fruit, spice, a sparkly oyster-shell mineral edge, and a nibble of sweetness. There’s also a delicate, drying citrus pithiness towards the back, that adds more interest to the long, lingering finish.
