Quite pale colour intensity. Bright, approaching light golden. Intense nose. More on the tropical side, with hints of some floral notes. Yellow fruit, orange zest, grapefruit, some stone fruit as well. Still with a slightly, I would say, rather ripe herbs. It leans in the direction of Sauvignon Blanc, but rather with some mint, some ripe herbs, cut grass. Palate has medium weight, with a good grip. There is some extract there. Some phenolic presence. Notes of lemon zest. There is also some dried spiciness there, like white pepper, anise seed. A slight hint of bitterness on the finish. Medium towards long. Still a bit youthful, but it should probably develop and round off the edges a bit more.
