Medium+ intensity nose featuring lush buttery apple, toasty integrated oak, vanilla and some earthy notes add complexity. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and smooth with very nice aroma replays, integrated vanilla oak, and some mineral flavours. Crisp, balanced acids add freshness. Excellent length on the long, smooth and balanced finish. A pleasure to sip. Tasted July/2015.
