Colour: Pale straw with brassy highlights. Bouquet: Rich and spicy but lifted and inviting at the same time. Honeysuckle, lime leaf, chestnut and guava like aromas.
Palate: A mouth filling texture, with mango and lime zest flavours. The chalky acidity persists on the palate for a long expansive finish.
Cellaring: The aromatic characteristics of this wine are best appreciated in the short to medium term, but this wine will gain complexity over the next ten years or so. Try it with Pad Thai. Drink now to 2035.
Vintage: A hot and dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and a cool February ensured all the natural acidity was retained at harvest. The grapes had bundles of concentrated flavour and lots of vibrant acidity.
