Very bright colour just starting to develop a slight hint of very light golden. Excellent brightness. This one is really combining purity with intensity. Very very pure fruit here. A lot of stoniness and minerality paired with some hints of stone fruit, really like fresh pineapple, peach, ripe lemon. Then on top of that, there is a lot of nuttiness as well, like finely roasted hazelnuts. I really like that this one has a very very fine oak. The toastiness is really elegant and integrated. Despite that generosity and fruitiness, I still think it keeps its innocence because it is just so pure and intense at the same time. Excellent bite and grip on the palate, really full-bodied. Despite that generosity of fruit, those toasty notes, it keeps within that bone-dry frame. Mouth-watering acidity, very good extract. On the mid-palate, the fruit is emerging, ripe pear with those stone fruity notes. Finely toasted oak and a tremendously long finish. Beautiful purity and minerality on the finish, good extract, perfectly integrated wood. Bloody delicious.
