In the beginning, it was a bit restrained yet charming and sophisticated. Ripe fruits of good quality, grapefruit, baked apple, brioche with cinnamon, ginger, chalk and mushrooms. The aftertaste is long and flavourful. Deliciously saline mouthfeel. After a few hours, it became more intense and seamless. Great structure with salty minerality, good acidity and a long linear finish.
