The enthralling intensity of fruit and minerality in this sprightly wine make it well worth cellaring. On the nose, it's still quite closed, with smoky tones of struck flint and slate. An explosion of rich mango, pineapple and stone fruit flavors await on the palate, highlighted by a spine-tingling spray of acidity. It's deliciously wild now but should gain depth and elegance from 2021.
