    Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Sailing out of the glass are intense aromatics of white peaches, ripe nectarines, dried honey, cashew, biscuity nougat characters and spice. Rich and concentrated yet refined in its feel, the palate serves up sumptuous fleshy white peach and nectarine fruits over a back drop of dried honey, cashew, citrusy nougat characters, biscuity oak and light spice. Nicely rounded with a gentle creaminess to the textural feel, it finishes with plenty of freshness on the long expansive aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 5-6 years.
    Alc. 13.5%

    The sheer crackle of quality. There's a flintiness to the nose, but the palate is pure, powerful and long. It's seamless in its own, formidable way. Ripe stone fruit, crushed fennel seeds, citrus rind and smoked oatmeal characters purr throughout. A beauty. Drink by 2028.
