An elegant bouquet centering on aromas of pure yellow fleshed orchard
fruits, oak, lees and the complexities the harmonies of these three
elements reveal. On the palate – weighty, almost full-bodied, fruits
flavours of grapefruit and peach, some quince and apple then the
unmistakable youthful bite of new French wood. Tannins, acid and
wood are of equal intensity demanding my attention. A truly flavourful
wine with textures from oak and acid, lees and fruit intensity. Still on
its way to balance and harmony – and it will – with best drinking likely
from late 2021 early 2022 through 2028. Lengthy and engaging finish.
This is a new-oak fermented Sauvignon Blanc Wine – and a rather
stunning example
