Balance and terroir guide this wine from the get-go. The nose is adorned with still somewhat reserved notes of lime zest, white flowers, and slate, the elements showing very nice harmony and layering. The palate is bone dry with electric acidity. It coats the palate quite smoothly despite its obvious youthful tightness, carrying the flavours beautifully and with great energy and focus. This wine has all the markers for excellent ageing potential. It's a shining example of what BC can do. 90+
