Vibrant gold with green flashes.

Pungent aromatics marrying peach flesh, almond kernel, brioche and citrus flowers together to form a very complex, intriguing nose. Subtle hints of background spice, oak and freshly spun cream adds further intrigue.

Intensely flavoured with up front lime and grapefruit zest further developing into nutty notes, oak char and lees character. The palate is balanced between acid tightness, tannin influence and textural fruit flavour.
