Description

Aromas of lime curd and grapefruit zest with restrained fig leaf, white pepper and flint nuances. As with the 2015 vintage, the palate is rounded with gentle tangy lime and grapefruit succulence, rather than the more tart, sharp citrus notes typical of the variety. It starts out deceptively simple and then develops into a peacock’s tail where the fruit and a delightful flinty minerality mingle. Long lingering tail. Still young, this wine has lots of life in it and will reward some ageing.
