Barnyard-y funk on the nose and loads of herbs and flowers on the palette. Really surprising and pretty

Quite Bretty on the first night, second night all gone. Bright, juicy, fresh, but lacks some complexity. She's a young one. Would like to revisit. Shows promise.

Delicate fruit with a touch of herb, but not much intensity in this one. Enjoyed it nonetheless.
