2012 vintage. Pale lemon. Almond, nutty, citrus fruit profile. On the palate, more obviously an oxidised style - albeit not overtly. Oakwood and vanilla, medium acidity, medium plus concentration, medium plus finish. Not bad at all.

2012 vintage. Medium gold in colour. The oxidised style is alluring on the nose - almonds, vanilla essence and ripe stone fruit. On the palate, the wine is surprisingly light bodied and soft, even delicate. A silky texture, with a touch of tannin presumably from the oak. It's a tad dilute relative to my expectation. And the finish is medium plus. Better on the nose than the palate. But very enjoyable nonetheless.

Surprising mind blowing experience. Stunning on the palate. Pear, green apple, Marconi almond with slight butter on the finish.
