The wine's colour os one of mid straw with green hues. There is a perfumed nose of lemon & lime zest preludes the ripe yet focused white peach & nectarine stone fruits. A sense of wet stone minerality ripples throughout, providing cleansing contrast to more savoury aspects of fennel seed and lees-driven pastry notes all subtly framed by cinnamon oak spice. On the palate, olts of ripe white peach, preserved lemon, and grapefruit pith form the front and mid-palate before the mineral acidity pulls the palate long to showcase the fine chalk-like textures. Encapsulating the palate throughout is an assuaging creaminess driven by the 14 months on lees in 35% new French oak & 65% MLF. Overall this release is where flavour meets focus and while drinking beautifully now, it will see 10+ years in the cellar.
