Youthful colour, pale straw with a slight hint of green. Quite expressive nose here. A lot of stuff going on. This is at first offering some nuttiness like, crushed nuts. With some hints suggesting sweetness like honey or wax with some yellow fruity notes. Might be a slight hint of oak there as well. Good bite on the palate, distinctly dry. There is good extract as well, adding a certain freshness there. Quite mouth-watering. Fresh acidity, well-preserved. The fruit feels slightly less ripe on the palate than on the nose. More like fresh vibrant and green fruit, with hints of citrus and that nuttiness, goes through on to the finish. Which is medium towards long. Interesting example. I think it has the structure to go on for a few years, even though it shows itself pretty well already now.
