White gold with green hues
At time of writing, somewhat restrained - white florals attempting to unfurl. Needs time! An aromatic mosaic of white stone-fruit, mandarin blossom, peach nectar and wild thyme. A lees-derived savourynougat edge, with a suggestion of white chocolate praline lurking in the background. Fresh sea-spray and a wet chalklimestone mineral 'dampness' hesitantly attest to cool climate sourcing, or soils, or lees management, or perhaps all of the above?
Fruit delivers flavours of white peach and lemon pith. And what of the oaklees? More than likely manifested by way of cashewsesame and chickpea creaminess. Wonderfully clean and tight pencil shavingsgraphite oak woven around a frame of slatey, wet stone acidity. Noted that this wine is currently shackled by the same phenolics that may shield an optimal appreciation for some time yet!
