Crisp and linear, this opens with aromas of tomato vine, hay, citrus fruit and a hint of white spring flower. The savory palate has more weight than expected for what was a cool, wet vintage, showing orange zest, yellow peach and ginger alongside zesty acidity. Fresh apricot closes the finish. It's an impressive showing.
