Layered and intriguing nose of lemon, lychee, and bergamot in cahoots with a delicate briny note, baking spices and brioche. The palate is lithe and delicious, bursting with citrus and spicy oak. Ten months un-sulphured, on lees, has encouraged short bread and uncooked cookie dough flavours.
Barrel spice and a background of ferment derived reduction enhances all the above. The wine is concentrated with a tension driving citrus acidity.

Cellar through to late 2020’s.
Alc. 13%

What the pros think:

Aromas and flavours of fresh peaches and ripe citrus, red apple and a fine lees complexity. Oak layers in a baking spice and gentle toasted barrel quality. Delicious on the palate with a coarse-silk texture, near full-bodied mouthfeel and flavours of citrus and yellow stone fruits. A layer of barrel spice combined with lees and acidity make for a textured and flavourful wine. Well made with a decent length and complexity. Best drinking from the day of purchase through 2027. Excellent- 94 points, Cameron Douglas MS
