“Gentle aromatic notes of white flower and stone fruit. Restrained and light on the palate too, but shows a nice mix of citrus, peach, blossom, and a slight sweet finish of brioche and cream. A simple, dry, structured finish.”
“Characteristic lemon notes dominate the aromas, with giant notes of pear, melon and vanilla grass. Ripe, rich, attractive fruit forward palate with lifted acidity to compliment a chalky texture. Very pleasant herbal edge and potential to develop.”
“Baked apple on those nose, slightly earthy, with some evolved autolytic character. Tiny hint of kerosine. Soft, mellow palate redolent of crab apple, white plum and quince. Some peach coming through too. Dry, gritty mineral finish. Gentle acidity.”
“Simple floral nose, orchard fruit, faint honeysuckle. Slight almond note on the palate, nice citrus, mainly clean, lemon and lime notes, some grass. Solid structure. Very prevalent acidity. Good concentration of fruit on the finish.”
“Evolved nose, but still showing white flowers and brioche with a punch of exotic banana. It’s complex, with salinity, petrol and a touch of wild herb. Palate is juicy, but structured. A serious white wine demonstrating the potential of the variety and variation in vintage.”
