Unreal nose. Just dripping with honeyed apricot and peach fruit. Herbs. Such focus. Super minerals. Wow. Huge rapier like acidity. Wow. Insane concentration and acids. Green Apple and peaches. But also closed and only showing 15% or so of its potential. Huge inner mouth aromas and great, deep minerality and more of that tart sweet fruit thing. But also aggressively penetrating minerals. So long. So pure. So elegant. So filigreed. Unreal depth and richness and has an icing like fruit soak.
