This wine comes across as a bit of a show off or a young, flirtatious thing. The appearance is pale with a brilliant straw colour. The aromas are tight and fresh with moderate intensity. There is a mix of citrus notes, warmed wild honey, ripe red apples, white peach stone, freshly made pop corn and tropical fruits. As the wine opens up, a smoky scent mixed with spice and melon comes through adding to the winea s fruit complexity. The palate is tight but has a lovely softness about it with moderate concentration and a persistent and vibrant finish balanced with fine acidity. Flavours are a mix of peach and nectarine, green melon rind and pineapple cubes when swallowed with a back drop of tangelo zest and mineral notes perfectly integrated with the light oak characters of the wine.This dry, full-bodied wine is most enjoyable now and will continue to develop further complex fruit and bottle age characters over the next 8 to 10 years from release.
