This is a gorgeous wine, with wonderfully round stone fruit flavours, reminiscent of apricot and generous white peach. It shows huge intensity and concentration, with a wet stone minerality on the finish - for me, that is always a texture not a flavour, and extremely welcome in a young white wine. They lost two of the five plots to frost, so production is 35-40% down on normal. The grapes were picked between 30 August and 5 September, and 13% went through malo. There is 1% of Muscadelle in addition to the blend given.
The impressive ripeness and intensity combined with elegance and finesse are what make this wonderful white. Honeysuckle, apricots, glazed grapefruit, spices and nutmeg. Medium to full body and fleshy fruit that’s lifted by the delicious acidity to the long finish.
