Very young at the mo but already incredibly expressive and animated with an hour or two in glass/decanter. Opens up with a wonderful mix of wood spice, heather, lavender, coffee grounds, hickory, wet bark, but also an attractive blueberry skin, blueberry muffin/pie richness and a perfumed violet infused soap high note (in a good way). There are also background notes of miso and stewed porcini mushrooms, plenty of umami action along with some smoky bacon notes. Already showing admirable aromatic complexity.
The palate lacks the complexity of the nose at the moment though there’s plenty of sinewy tannin and vibrant acidity with that ripe blueberry fruit and earthy wood spice showing on a decent finish, still needs a few years to shine but on this first taste it’s incredibly promising. — 6 days ago

Some decent complexity in the nose, quite iodine, smoky with some sushi seaweed along with stewed apple, orchard floor, orange blossom, manuka honey & honey comb.
Palate has plenty of that rich, baked red apple, again some orange butters and lemon zest with some ginger on the warming finish. Quite rich in style and lacking a bit acidic structure, the hot 2018 vintage shows here. Maybe not one to age for more than 5 or so years. — 2 days ago

Excellent. Roaring acid, just the right amount of sweetness, nicely effervescent. Green apple, sweet hay, lemon zest. — 2 days ago
Tons of buttery flavour. Notes of ripe apple, melon and citrus with nuances of oak and vanilla. Medium-bodied and rich with a long finish. Best one I've found at this price range. — 4 days ago
