Impeccable balance, with length and salivating acidity that dances on the palate and bright flavours of just ripe lime, lemon zest and zippy apples. The powdery chalky tannins give the wine some nice textural qualities. The French oak is well integrated and barely perceptible.
Lively acidity with flinty river pebble dryness. Lime and lemon juice with an almond glossiness and a whisper of lactose. The acidity sets this up as a long-term cellaring prospect which will develop a touch of richness as it matures. Should develop further complexity with 10-12 years careful cellaring.
A wine of excellent freshness zippy acidity, poise and length. Lime flavours green pineapple, cumquat, and some passionfruit.
