Top Notes For
Aravind A

Pop and pour. Notes from 3ish hours open. On the nose: ripe peach, soft saffron, meyer lemon, a hint of honey, tarragon...fantastically intense. On the palate: amazing acidity, and balanced density; lime, soft peach, nettle..excellent complexity. Mouth-filling and excellent length. Still very young, but with the balance and intensity, this shows so much promise whilst being very enjoyable already!
