Tasting notes
  • A complex nose of citrus, apple, peach and apricot as well as hay and spice plus a not unpleasant note of reduction. 
  • Extremely flavourful on the palate. 
  • Not too lean or too thick in texture and possessing lovely freshness
  • a real succulence upfront before a nice pithy quality to the finish’
