Tasting Note:
This wine has a nose of citrus and stone fruit with some spice and floral elements. The palate is fairly full, layered and richly textured, balanced by a vibrant acidity, with savoury notes. The finish is fresh and pithy. Best served at 10 to 12 °C, this wine will show optimally when decanted in the first 3 years after bottling.
