The immediate impression offered here is of a wine with flavour and complexity. Flavours move through melons, spices, gentle grilled nuts with everything nicely balanced. The palate is a step up. A wonderfully soft, creamy texture, but also exhibiting vibrant acidity. The oak melded well with the fruit. In the glass, more orange rind and nutty notes emerged. There is good length here. A wine to drink now or any time over the next five years.
