The appearance is light straw. It has a perfumed nose of old fashioned rose petals, yellow peach, citrus peel and classic lychee. The palate has delicately mingled but buoyant flavours of rose petal, juicy nectarine, crystalline ginger and a sprinkling of cinnamon spice. This is a wine which embraces rather than overpowers the palate, which has a particular gloss that has a coating effect with its aftertaste. Now that these vines are 18 years old, we are finding that the flavour intensity is increasing and hence we are able to achieve balance in the wine in a dryer style. It should be drinking well between 5 & 7 years in a good cellar and I expect its development to continue beyond this.
