    Brilliant pale straw colour with a gleaming tinge of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Potently scented aromatics of peach, ripe nectarine and more subtle grapefruit are trailed by biscuity oak, dried honey and gun flint. Well rounded on entry, rich nectarine, white peach and dried honey flavours morph into roasted almonds, biscuit and spice on the back half. Finishes fresh with lively acidity. The long refined aftertaste possessing a complexing nuttiness.
    Drink over the next 5-6 years.
    Alc. 13.3%

    Other Reviews….
    This single vineyard series is full of stars but this is arguably the brightest of them. In the intensity of fruit and the corresponding length of flavour. It attacks straight up and simply doesn't let go. It's polished and tidy but boy does its motor hum. Drink by 2031.
