“Baked apple on those nose, slightly earthy, with some evolved autolytic character. Tiny hint of kerosine. Soft, mellow palate redolent of crab apple, white plum and quince. Some peach coming through too. Dry, gritty mineral finish. Gentle acidity.”
“Gentle aromatic notes of white flower and stone fruit. Restrained and light on the palate too, but shows a nice mix of citrus, peach, blossom, and a slight sweet finish of brioche and cream. A simple, dry, structured finish.”
“Characteristic lemon notes dominate the aromas, with giant notes of pear, melon and vanilla grass. Ripe, rich, attractive fruit forward palate with lifted acidity to compliment a chalky texture. Very pleasant herbal edge and potential to develop.”
