From 35 to 47 year-old vines and matured in 50/50 new and 2nd use French oak barrels, this has a medium-high intensity nose of honey, wax, lemon, stone fruit, and pear, with a subtle oak influence. On the medium-full bodied palate, it has very good concentration and weight to the fruit, with nice aroma replays on the flavour profile, plus some funky mineral notes arriving on the mid-palate. Acids are well-balanced, while the finish is long and elegant with subtle toasty notes. Tasted Oct/2019.
