Still quite young and tightly wound at the moment; this needs some more time for the wood to integrate. The ripeness...

Aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, canteloupe, and apple. Bright acidity and minerality cut through the concentrated and ripe fruit flavours. A rich, creamy texture with a long finish. Cellar for 2 to 4 years in order for full potential to shine through.

On the nose, bright aromas of pear, butter, baked apple and hints of citrus invite a sip. It’s a rich, luxurious wine on the palate, with striking acidity and minerality. The initial flavour profile is laden with citrus - lemon and white grapefruit - and then flavours of baked apple, hints of peaches and pineapple appear. This is a complex wine, as layers of minerality are available to the taster. There is a vivacious acidity keeping this wine from feeling overly buttery. The finish ebbs on the tongue, reminding the palate of the citrus flavours, baked apple and stone fruit, and finally slipping away leaving a distinct minerality behind. This is a complicated wine which will provide a great deal of pleasure to a great many people at this price point.
