Ratings and Reviews

Pale medium yellow. Peach and acacia flower dominate the nose, with notes of minerals and spices emerging with air. Quite round and sweet on entry, then rich and rather powerful in the middle palate, boasting terrific intensity and an element of salty minerality. Today the wine's fruit is slightly overshadowed by youthful oak but there's already a lot going on. Finishes sappy and long, with a firm edge that augurs well for the wine's future. I like the combination of ampleness and punch on display here and would hold this wine for at least a few years before pulling the cork. (25 hectoliters per hectare produced; 3.23 pH; 3.75 g/l acidity; there were no hail losses in 2016 but the severe spring frost reduced the yield)
