Cellar: Drink now - 4 Years (2020-2024)

Matured for 10 months in French oak of which 30% was new. Brilliant very pale straw almost water like colour with greenish tinged edges. Aromas of ripe nectarines, citrus and dried honey are followed by light clove and gun flint scents. Ripe nectarine and dried honey flavours decorate the mid weighted palate which is both fleshy and fresh in its feel. Juicy pear, light citrusy nougat and subtle infusions of gun flint sit underneath. Nicely balanced acidity with a medium length finish.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 12.5%

Other Reviews….
Pale quartz-green and bright. Tight, fine and coiled. Grapefruit and white stone fruit, citrus and mineral drive. Clarity and precision. Everything in its place, and all working together. Drink by 2027.
