Aroma

Very lifted, elegant and complex with honey nougat, green pineapple, lemon pith, lovely hints of nectarine, ginger, sage, custard tart crust, almond meal and cedar.

Tight, restrained and complex with some creaminess immediately, but arriving quickly is fine, taut natural acidity carrying refined flavours. Lemon pith with hints of lime and custard tart are carried long on a dry finish to the palate which will soften and develop complexity with time.
