Brilliant pale straw colour with a distinct glimmer of green around the edges and a watery hue. Powerful lemon and lime scents meld into oily toast likes characters, bees wax and some emerging kerosene notes. Showing early signs of development the palate has an intense flavour profile of lemon and lime fruits over oily steel like elements, toast, subtle kerosene and flinty minerals. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a long slatey mineral infused aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
It's really, really hard to put this wine down. Expect to be wooed by the fragrance as much as the palate. A perfect blend of freshness and pulsing acidity, with some complexity of age starting to unfurl: preserved lemons with ginger spice, candied lime jellies, buttered toast and lime marmalade. But not too much. It has some way to go. Drink by 2033.
