Right off the bat, this is clearly a wine that will evolve nicely in the cellar, its nose hinting at the nuttiness that will come, the citrus and orchard-fruit aromas keeping it fresh now. On the palate, this shows wonderful concentration and acidity, both carrying a balanced wine with flashes of passionfruit, hard autumn fruit, and a touch of mineral and flower that rides through the generous finish.
