Still aging in oak, the wine is of a pale color.
The nose is full of lovely aromatic notes of grapefruit, lychee, mango and pineapple.
In addition, flavors of lime, toasted almond, and acacia flower can be detected.
The palate is fresh and mineral but an incredible density to the wine imparts a long finish. The vintage is already unusual for its power and freshness.
