Bright lemon in colour with a ripe nose of lemon curd, poached pear and lightly toasted brioche. The palate is crisp, with bright acidity refreshing waves of juicy citrus fruit. Measured dosage leaves a dry finish that complements the riper fruit profile, adding mineral cut and coolness to the palate. Building through the mid palate onto the long finish come the notes of brioche, smoke and hazelnut, fleshing out the wine and adding a wonderful complexity. The ripeness of fruit makes this approachable already, but the mineral, taut, and increasingly complex finish denotes a wine with great potential to improve after a few extra years in bottle.

A fullish style with savory aromas of almond cream, nougat and grilled hazelnuts, as well as dried lemon and pastry. The palate is smoothly arranged with layers of savory, lees-fueled pastry flavors. Drink or hold.
