TASTING PROFILE

The vintage was hotter and drier than normal and the wine definitely shows that. An intense, well-integrated nose with a layered bouquet of orange blossom & tangerine and almonds in the background.

Outstanding tension and freshness on the palate, melange of tropical fruits and a beautiful texture with a mineral aftertaste that lingers on the palate. Should peak 3-4 years after vintage.
