Rich honeyed apple and crème brûlée rise on the nose of this classically styled wine, tight in texture and weight with a boldness of baked pineapple and nutmeg. Lengthy and complex, it draws much of the fruit from Dutton's Mill Station Vineyard in Green Valley, an appellation that can deliver lots of spice and minerality; both are on display here.
