Bright colour here, rather high intensity or medium to deep or medium-golden colour I would say. Beautiful perfume here, quite tropical showing off some fresh pineapple, passion fruit, apricot with something sweet like honey or wax. Yet, with a very nice presence of minerality, like crushed stone and no noticeable oak. Very good grip on the palate here, high concentration without heaviness. Dense fruit, but lush tropical fruit, but underlined by a very bright acidity. Plenty of extract there like hints of orange zest, lemon zest, finely spicy with a beautiful balance. Really powerful and dense with a good grip, fairly long finish. All the time I call it elegant with that bright freshness. Still youthful, but definitely a wine that should continue to develop for a long time. So bloody good stuff.
