Delicious right now. Great fresh fruit, sweetness at the edges, a steely core and lovely integrated acidity. Fresh and delicious

Gorgeous. Bright and flint edged. Great fruit and minerality. Early days but totally delicious.

Lovely but not as good as I was anticipating. I think my expectations were too high. Probably needs more age. Chardonnay like with metallic and melon tones.

Pale gold color.
Aromas of buttery lemon pastry (freshly baked!). Yum!
Dry. Flavors of lemon, toasted brioche, earthy minerality, buttered pastry. Even with the age and the strong autolytic notes, the citrus notes are so fresh!

Intensity: 5/5
Complexity: 3/5
Balance: 4/5
Finish: 5/5

Bruised yellow apple, lime zest, lots of minerality. Pre dinner aperitif.
