A light yellow colour with a green tinge suggests a cooler vintage. Fresh tropical fruits, bright peach, yellow apple, and a trademark hint of flint, greet the nose. The palate starts off with expressive ripe orchard fruits and then melds into honeyed almond, ginger spice and notes of creme brulee. The wine is poised and balanced, with a great combination of ripeness and mineral tension. Maturation for 10 months on full lees, in oak barrels has resulted in a wonderful combination of creamy richness.
