Youthful colour, pale straw with a green tinge. Very stony nose. Flinty. With crushed stone. Which is a term, of course, we wine geeks we always use when we think something is mineral. It is not easy to imagine crushed stone for everyone, however, I like crushed stone, so I say it. Then we have yellow fruit there, some tropical hints, like fresh pineapple, like grapefruit, yellow plum. Good purity, and always with that notion of stoniness. Very slim palate. Slim in a positive sense. Quite low alcohol. Not really broad shouldered, but fine flavour intensity. That juicy yellow fruit, underlined by a very bright acidity also with that presence of stoniness. So really mouth-watering. What it lacks in breadth it definitely has in length. It is quite persistent, well it is persistent, and it keeps lingering. So light delicate with youthful fruit and purity.
