The excellent Maresh vineyard is the source here (with one additional barrel from 20-year-old vines at Nysa). Simply delicious right from the start, this delicate, captivating wine opens with lightly floral aromas, moves into sweet cherry and raspberry fruit, then brings in sharply-defined herbal details. It's complex and inviting, with many years of life ahead.
