So much SO2 at first, this needed a full day open to blow off. Subtle nose of wet stone, some pomaceous fruit, SO2. You could argue its flawed given the perceptible sulphur. With air and vigorous aeration it slowly unwinded and blew off. Palate is gorgeous though, it is taut with a defined sensibility to it. Lemon peel, orange zest, ripe pear, white peach, orchard blossom, crushed flint and chalk, hazelnut, popcorn, and an ever so slight touch of vanilla and spice on the long finish. A thread of reduction no surprise there. Plenty of top-of-the slope character with racy acid and mineral backbone. I find it rather finessed all in all. Would love to revisit in 5-8 years.

Citrus, lemon zest, peach stone, wet stone, white pepper, dusty minerality, lingering finish.
