Brilliant water like colour with faint greenish tinged edgings. Powerful lime, citrus and orange rind scents fill the nostrils with ensuing talc and slatey mineral notes. Mouth watering flavours of lemon and lime have a tightly focused feel and are backed by crunchy acidity. Elements of chalky talc, subtle orange rind and flinty mineral ensue. Finishes dry, long and zesty with a steely underbelly.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
We seem to be missing a review of the 2019, but never mind as we now have 2020 vision. Ripe lemon with a lavender bath salts perfume, good intensity of flavour, grip and chalky texture, green apple in there, and a long precise tingly and sour-edged finish. Drink 2021-2030+
