For all its freshness, elegance and focus, the wine?s flavours are complex and intense,
ranging from bright lemon, fresh pineapple, apricots and juicy nectarine to more
concentrated lime marmalade as well as caramel and cream (from barrel fermentation
and 11 months of maturation in mostly older French oak). On the palate the initial
impression is floral (heady honeysuckle) finishing with white peaches and apricots,
with hints of citrus and a fresh acidity ? great persistence promising enjoyment over
at least five years.
