Just a shade off dry in style, this feather-light dynamo offers bold, concentrated stone fruit and blossom tones, enveloped in rich, penetrating swathes of smoke and earth. It's a gorgeously complex wine, with spine tingling acidity and a delicate, lilting mouthfeel that extends endlessly on the finish. Drinks beautifully already but concentrated and structured enough to improve well through 2030.
