Fresh citrus & lemon curd with delicate florals.
Mineral & flinty, citrus from the nose is present on the palate. The wine then develops into one of richness, complexity & texture. Excellent length.
Budburst was early this year which resulted in flowering with good fruit set. The warm ripening period saw harvest commence a week sooner than normal. Yields were reported as high – average with fine acidity retention and excellent balanced flavours.
