The colour is a brilliant straw green. An incredibly complex and lifted bouquet of ripe golden pear skin, peach, savoury toasted ground almonds and white nectarine. This wine is showing multiple layers of fruit and subtle class driven French oak. The result of very low yielding vines matched with subtle winemaking preserves the richness and intensity of fruit. The palate displays a full bodied vibrant wine on the entry, with a creaminess and intense purity of fruit. Pear, nectarine and peaches are the main fruit flavours followed by a subtle sweet spice and almonds. The flavours are seamlessly long with a wonderful natural acid finish.

Wine SpectatorSilky, round and deftly balanced to play its pear, apricot, grapefruit and nutmeg flavors against a refined structure, casting it all into the long, enticing finish, which sails on impressively. Remarkable for its deftness, not its obvious power. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported.
