This is a foxy wine. Not a foxy scent of course, rather, an alluring wine. Relatively shy nose (foxes are not the most gregarious of creatures), but a fairly substantial palate with medium plus body, and flavours of orange and lemon citrus, minerality and a slightly bitter late palate. Medium plus acidity and excellent length. Quite food friendly. Definitely not a case of the tail wagging the fox. The quality/price ratio is cunningly good. Sept. 2016.
