Pronounced straw yellow hue. Oily tears. Noble scents of hazelnut cookies and dried fruits with a hint of white chocolate. Discreet flavours of yellow apple, lemon zest and dates. Needs air or at least some time to develop. Bone dry and racy; full-bodied with lots of saltiness. The wood here is completely undetectible. The smooth texture continues from beginning to the long citrus finale – which yields an expression of pomelo. Guaranteed to have a long life.
hearty home dishes and hard cheeses
