Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Aromas of nectarine and grapefruit mix with melon and gun flint like notes. Vibrant nectarine, green apple, water melon and grapefruit flavours have a light zingy feel with subtle roasted almond and flinty mineral characters lying underneath. Dry finish with crisp acidity and a snappy, flint infused aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Barrel fermented, 20% new oak. Bryan Currie made this.
Concentrated aromas, nougat and almond meal with peaches and apples, just enough of cloves and nutmeg spice. The palate is leaner than the rich nose but still full-flavoured, focused, with grapefruit juice and wet stones mineral aftertaste. It has an elegant and steady flow. There’s a bit of salt and dried eucalyptus leaves in it too, nice one. Solid expression, built well.
