Succulent, fine boned, lightly juicy, green apple and quince flavours, scents of potpourri, ripe apple and ginger. Flavours are drawn ultra long on that gloss of texture then finish with a powdery puff of talc and light pleasing bitterness. Lots of personality built into this wine. It’s a wine of finesse but also a wild streak. This is accentuated by extended skin contact, time on lees and no filteration, which can cause a hazy hue.
