Lovely, highly aromatic nose of petrol, lemon/lime citrus, and peach notes. It's medium-full bodied on the palate, and quite fat with very good, impressive concentration. The lovely aroma replays are off-dry, and supported by crisp, balanced acidity. Excellent length on the long, satisfying finish. Tasted Apr. 2023. Score: 92+ pts
