Hedonistic and tightly focused, this exceptionally balanced wine displays lemon, lime and a seamless spine of natural acidity leading to a finish of extraordinary length.

At release, the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edge.
The wine displays zesty lemon and lime aromas along with faint orange blossom and talc.
The wine has been crafted for longevity so at release, it is tightly restrained with a linear acid line, peaking in the mid-palate. There are lashings of freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice characters up front, well-balanced by a slate-like mineral character. It is backed up by a persistent and refreshing finish which all bodes well for a wine that will delight in its youth but also age gracefully in the cellar.
Under ideal conditions this wine should cellar well to 2036, possibly longer.
