Rich straw yellow. The nose are utterly complex and expressive, brimming with notes of leesy lemon biscuits, white citrus, dried baking herbs, hay and dried tangerine peel. On the palate, the textural intricacy is notable as you would expect from a wine with nearly a quarter-Roussanne in the blend, which lends extra dimensions of fleshy white stone fruit and marzipan depth. This showcases the classical crystalline purity of the vintage framed by a tart lemon lime acidity and a stony, liquid mineral granitic complexity. Beautifully sensual and pristinely balance, every mouthful stimulates the senses with crisp white peaches, crunchy green pears, granny smith apples, bay leaf herbal notes and yet more green mango and saline twang on the long exhilarating finish.
