Tasting: On the nose there are citrus (grapefruit), yellow fruit (mirabelles), and hints of white flowers. The structure is fine and slender, with a balance based on great freshness. The body is attractively fruit-filled and expressive, and charms the palate with its purity. Delicious finish of pink grapefruit

This is wine for ageing. Open 30 minutes before serving at 13-15°C. Fantastic as an aperitif or with entrées.

"Enticing, with ginger, Bosc pear, green melon and fig fruit flavors that show a rich edge but stay racy and defined. Ends with a streak of verbena. Drink now through 2027. "
