The fruit is concentrated, complex and refreshing, offering a profile of minerals, white peach, apples, lemon and lime peel fruits, all tightly gathered together on the palate with the seamless fresh crisp acid and lingering tropical fruits.

Aroma

Fragrant, lifted aromas of freshly cut white peach, floral apple blossom, lemon and lime peel fruits, with the subtle hints of mineral quartz and talc.

Drink now to 2013. Likely best years 2011 and 2012.
