As a young wine, this is very pale in the glass – almost water white. Aromatically it is incredibly intense and complex. It shows bursts of lime blossom and jasmine flower, backed with citrus fruit notes – then, there is even a dash of stone fruit. This is followed by an intriguing hint of vanilla spice. On the palate, the excitement continues. It is clearly off-dry, but, is certainly not sweet. The acidity is focused and bright and this acts as a perfect foil to the residual sugar – the net result is a glorious balance between the two. The acidity gives the wine juiciness and raciness, but there is also body and weight. The flavours run to ripe citrus and vanilla cream/jasmine compote. The wine has presence, and, persistence. The citrus notes and the precision of this wine make it an ideal aperitif, but, it also has the complexity, spice and weight to be partnered with gently spiced south-east Asian dishes. At the time of writing, this wine is extraordinarily youthful and has all the hallmarks of age ability. Time in a cool cellar will see the wine add flesh, depth and further layers of complexity.
