Lovely, highly aromatic nose delivers buttery, vanilla, ripe golden apple, and pineapple aromas. It's medium-full bodied and a touch ripe on the palate with juicy acids and very good fruit concentration and more vanilla, buttery, apple, and pear flavours. There's some leesy and mineral qualities on the mid-palate. Toasty and spicy notes linger on the long finish, with excellent length. Tasted Feb/2020.
