There is plenty of intensity on the nose with aromas of white nectarine, red apple and grapefruit combined with a layer of nutmeg scented, savoury oak. The touch of reduction is subtle, contributing a faint whiff of struck match. On the palate there is a subtle biscuity, creamy layer that wraps around the fruit resulting in a silky texture. Delicious now though has the potential to age well in bottle.
