Tasting Notes

This has terrific composure, among the fresher and better-presented of the vintage in terms of aromas. It's toasty with grilled hazelnuts, chalky and flinty. Aromas are in the pithy grapefruit and dried peach spectrum, with lemon too. The palate's seamless, powerful and quite deeply flavoured. It climbs high and wide, then focuses neatly through the finish as acidity chimes in as well as some cherry flavour that steadies and balances. Great drinking now.
