This wine glories in its rich texture and opulent feel. It strikes an almost perfect balance between ripe fruit and amazing freshness. Wood toast adds a delicate layer of flavor between the acidity and warm yellow fruits. The steely character and the tight final texture are both promises for the future. Drink from 2018.
